Laudrup linked to Liverpool post

Former Denmark international Michael Laudrup is on Liverpool’s shortlist to replace Kenny Dalglish, who was sacked as manager earlier this week, Sky Sports has reported.

The former Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona midfielder is currently out of work having left La Liga side Mallorca in September 2011. Laudrup, who has also coached Spartak Moscow, Getafe and Brondby, is said by Sky Sports to be interested in coaching in English football even though he never played in the country.

While at Getafe Laudrup took the Madrid-based side to the final of the Copa del Rey and the quarter-final of the UEFA Cup in his only season with the club. After resigning, Laudrup spent seven months in Moscow before returning to Spain. While at Brondby, his first managerial post, Laudrup won the Danish Superliga, two Danish Cups and two Danish Super Cups.

Laudrup, 47, is the older brother of former Rangers and Chelsea forward Brian Laudrup, who spent four years in Scotland before a year in west London.
