I don't want to manage a big club like Chelsea, says Laudrup

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup insists that he has no ambitions to manage a leading European club, according to comments featured in The Independent.

The Dane has been linked to the top jobs at Chelsea and Real Madrid in recent weeks, having guided Swansea City through another successful season for the club.

The Swans face Bradford City in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday but it seems, win or lose, that the former Real Madrid and Barcelona player is in no rush to leave the Welsh club.

Laudrup said: "Let's say I had the ambition to be manager one day of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Juventus, whatever. Finally I arrive. I finish second, I go out of the Champions' League semi-final on penalties, I lose 2-1 in the national cup final."

"For 10 years I've done everything to get there and then after nine months, I'm out. Why live for that? I've been there as a player for top clubs. It can be much more pleasure to be somewhere where you don't have to win titles."

As well as reaching a domestic cup final, the 48-year-old has enjoyed a steady Premier League campaign, with Swansea currently in ninth place.
