Former Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup is consulting lawyers over his dismissal from the Premier League club, Sky Sports has reported.

Laudrup was sacked on Tuesday after just over 18 months at the Liberty Stadium, winning the Capital One Cup last season. He leaves the Swans 12th in the table.


But Laudrup has said he is disappointed by the decision and the way in which it was handled, confirming in a statement he was taking legal advice.


“I am deeply disappointed to have been dismissed as manager of Swansea City,” Laudrup said.


“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 have already written to the club asking for a proper explanation as to why I was summarily dismissed.


“Until we receive the response I am unable to say any more about the termination but I do want to take this early opportunity to thank the Swansea City fans for their continued support and say it has been an honour to manage this great football club.


“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.


“I wish the club the very best for the future and for the rest of the season in the Barclays Premier League, Europa League and the FA Cup.”


Laudrup has been replaced on a temporary basis by veteran defender Garry Monk, who takes charge of his first game in the south Wales derby against Cardiff on Saturday.

There are 1000's of Swansea fans around the world would who agree with the decision to sack Michaal Laudrup and further back the clubs board of directors of the timing of it. If you take in to account Swansea City's record since winning the League Cup trophy than this would justify their lack of confidence in Michael Laudrup. It is very poor indeed and many believe he gained the success of that trophy built on a team created by Roberto Martinez and Brendan Rogers. The club was also motivated to win it because it was their centenary year. There were much talk on the street as people expressed there concerns and I being one of them. Swansea City weren't playing the kind of football that made the club a success and the future looked ominous. I am convinced the decision was indeed the right one to sack Michael, and I wish him all the best too!
