Laudrup seeks legal advice

LONDON - Michael Laudrup has slammed the manner of his sacking by Swansea and revealed he is considering legal action against the English Premier League club.

Denmark football great Laudrup was dismissed as manager of the south Wales side on Wednesday following a poor run of results, barely a year after leading the Swans to the League Cup, the first major trophy in their history.

"I am deeply disappointed to have been dismissed as manager of Swansea City," Laudrup said in a statement issued on Wednesday with Swansea 12th in the table and still involved in the FA Cup and Europa League.

"In particular, the manner in which it happened and the actions the club has taken since notifying me in the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary.

"I am, of course taking legal advice and the LMA (League Managers' Association) have already written to the club asking for a proper explanation as to why I was summarily dismissed."

Laudrup added he'd been banned by Swansea from visiting the training ground to thank the players.

"The club has informed me that I cannot visit the training ground to say my farewells to the players so I do that now through this statement.

"The players have been fantastic and their contribution under the very professional guidance of my coaching staff has been absolutely fundamental to the club's recent successes.

"Whilst league results have been disappointing of late, we are still 12th in the table."
