Michael Laudrup has romped to victory in a fans' vote regarding who should replace Jose Mourinho if he leaves Real Madrid at the end of the season.
The poll, conducted by AS, received a total of 40,000 votes and saw the Dane clinch a 78 per cent majority with Rafael Benitez and Carlo Ancelotti receiving 18% and 9% respectively.
The five-time Liga winner spent two seasons at the Blancos as a player after joining from rivals Barcelona in 1994.
Laudrup began his career in coaching as the assistant manager for the Danish national side at World Cup 2002. The former winger then increased his experience with Getafe, Spartak Moscow and Mallorca before moving to England to take charge of Swansea City.
The former Madrid star has had an extremely fruitful first season with the Swans, and this weekend Laudrup takes the Welsh club to Wembley where they will face underdogs Bradford City in the Capital One Cup final.
