Laudrup: I may return to Spain one day
MICHAEL Laudrup has hinted that he may one day return to Spain on a permanent basis ahead of Swansea City’s Europa League tie in Valencia tonight.
Laudrup will lead Swansea at the Mestalla this evening as they kick off their Group A campaign with a glamour tie against one of La Liga’s heavyweight sides.
These are familiar surroundings for Laudrup, who spent the bulk of his playing career in Spain and has also had spells managing Getafe and Real Mallorca.
And though the Dane is enjoying life as Swansea boss at present, he indicated that he could come back for another job in Spain before he quits football.
Asked whether he could return to La Liga, Laudrup said: “I am happy in the Premier League.
“It’s a great experience for me working in English football because I never played there and I am enjoying my time there.
“We have had great success in the Premier League and in the Capital One Cup, so right now I am very happy, but you never know what will happen in the future.”
Laudrup is understood to be sweating on the fitness of one of his key players ahead of the Valencia game.
He is planning to field a strong starting side, although there will be changes to the XI which started against Liverpool on Monday night.
