Dismissed Swansea manager may sue

6:04 am on 8 February 2014

The sacked Swansea football manager Michael Laudrup is considering legal action against the English Premier League football club.

Laudrup was dismissed following a poor run of results, barely a year after taking them to the League Cup, the first major trophy in their history.

In a statement Laudrup says he's deeply disappointed at his sacking and the manner in which it happened.

He says he received the briefest of letters from club management but it gave no reason as to why he was being dismissed.

Laudrup says he's taking legal advice, adding that he's been banned Swansea from visiting the training ground to thank the players.
