Laudrup has taken Michu-influenced Swansea to the next level - Tottenham's AVB
Michael Laudrup has taken Swansea City to the next level according to Tottenham's Andre Villas-Boas.
The Welsh club sits eighth on the Premier League table with 23 points from 16 matches and Spurs boss Villas-Boas feels the additions of league-leading goalscorer Michu (12 goals) and midfielders Jonathan de Guzman and Pablo Hernandez have helped Laudrup achieve early-season success.
"Any player arriving in the Premier League will find it difficult but Michu has been brilliant, a tremendous goal scorer," AVB said ahead of Sunday's meeting between the two clubs.
"De Guzman and Hernandez have also done well and Michael Laudrup has taken Swansea to the next level."
