Laudrup to stay at Swansea after agent row

Michael Laudrup is expected to stay at Swansea City, Sky Sports has reported, despite the League Cup winners ending all ties with the agent of the former Denmark international, Bayram Tutumlu.

Sky Sports add that Tutumlu has been part of a number of deals to sign players for the Welsh club since Laudrup replaced Brendan Rodgers in the summer of 2012 but Swans chairman Huw Jenkins has put an end to the relationship between Tutumlu and the club, but Tutumlu will continue to represent Laudrup.

The manager said: “It is their (Jenkins’ and Tutumlu’s) mutual problem. It does not affect my relationship with Bayram. And it does not alter my decision to stay at Swansea. The only thing I’m interested in his having the best players available in the next season.

Tutumlu added: “Michael Laudrup is the coach of Swansea City and he will stay as the coach. He thinks only about Swansea. He has said many times before that he will stay at Swansea. I’ve not spoken to Michael, but I’m very disappointed about the situation.

I only try to bring good players for Michael while Huw Jenkins wants cheap, Championship players. I did a lot of good work for Swansea and I helped to bring players like Chico Flores, Michu, Pablo Hernandez and Jonathan de Guzman to the club.

In Laudrup’s first season at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea finished ninth in the league table, two places higher than the year before under Rodgers, and claimed the Capital One Cup by beating League Two side Bradford City at Wembley in a 5-0 triumph.
