Laudrup Refutes PSG Rumors

Swansea coach Michael Laudrup denies that he is heading to Paris St. Germain, as French sports daily L’Equipe reported on Wednesday. While his agent Bayram Tutumlu, who brought a number of players to the Liberty Stadium in addition to Laudrup, has reportedly severed ties with club chairman Huw Jenkins, Laudrup insists that the breakdown of their relationship has no bearing on his future.

"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,” Laudrup said Thursday. "The only thing I'm interested in his having the best players available in the next season."

Tutumlu also backed up that stance, saying: "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.”

The agent added that he’s “very disappointed” regarding his relationship with Jenkins. “I only try to bring good players for Michael while Huw Jenkins wants cheap, Championship players,” he said. “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."
