Swansea boss Michael Laudrup’s future as the club’s manager looks uncertain according to Sky Sports, as Swansea board members appear to be divided on whether the Dane should continue at the helm.
Club chairman Huw Jenkins confirmed Laudrup is still the manager at the Liberty Stadium, but speculation is growing that Laudrup will leave the club at the end of the season following poor form and declining performances on the pitch.
Laudrup’s relationship with Jenkins is in reported difficulty, and several board members are pushing for Laudrup’s exit to be brought forward to see an upturn in fortunes.
The Swans sit in 12th position in the Premier League, but lie just two points above the relegation zone after winning only one of their last eight league fixtures. Despite being in the fifth round of the FA Cup, the Welsh club’s form could hasten Laudrup’s exit.
Saturday’s 2-0 loss at West Ham made it six defeats in the last eight league games for Swansea, who next play host to arch rivals Cardiff City this weekend. A win in the derby will alleviate the growing pressure on Laudrup, but it looks clear that the former Danish international will need to string together a better run of results to prevent an exit before the season’s finale.
