Laudrup leaves Swansea City

6:38 am on 6 February 2014

The English Premier League football club Swansea City have parted company with manager Michael Laudrup.

The 49-year-old Dane was appointed on a two-year contract in June 2012 and led Swansea to a maiden trophy in the League Cup last season, but they have won only one of their past 10 league games in this campaign.

Swansea say former captain Garry Monk will work as head coach alongside first-team coach Alan Curtis "for the foreseeable future".
