thumbnail Hello,

The Dane's assistant manager sees no reason to panic as the 49-year-old is mentioned as a possible candidate for Spurs in the wake of Andre Villas-Boas's departure

Swansea City assistant boss Morten Wieghorst expects Michael Laudrup to stay put, despite him being linked with Tottenham.

The well-regarded former Getafe boss is reported to be a contender to replace Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane after the Portuguese was dismissed on Monday.

Wieghorst is not surprised to see Laudrup's name being linked with other teams but has no concerns about the 49-year-old's potential exit.

6/1 Michael Laudrup is 6/1 with William Hill to be the next permanent Tottenham manager
He told BBC Sport: "I don't think the club should be worried. We've seen in his time here he's been linked with a few vacant jobs and he's said: 'I'm staying'.

"Michael has always attracted interest and that's because he's doing a great job, because he's a great manager and because of what he's done in the game."

Swans defender Angel Rangel echoed Wieghorst's sentiments but could understand if Laudrup was tempted to move to north London.

"We don't really talk about [speculation over Laudrup's future]," he remarked. "We all believe in the manager and know that he's happy at Swansea, he's got a good bunch of players.

"If he decides to move, we'll always give him a great farewell because he's done well for us and for the club. We achieved great things last season with him - top 10 in the Premier League and winning the [Capital One] Cup.

"I wouldn't blame him if he wanted to go to a bigger club [but] I think he's happy at the moment."
