Sacked Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup isn't ready to jump into management just yet.

The Dane has been linked with West Bromwich Albion and Southampton since the end of the season.

"I've talked to clubs in England and Spain.

"Not to sound arrogant, because I am, but the teams are at a level where I've been. I've tried with smaller clubs in big leagues, Getafe and Mallorca in Spain and Swansea in the Premier League, so I see no reason to repeat this," Laudrup told Politiken.

"Right now, I feel that I need a job where I can look up in the table, not down."
