Laudrup insists Swansea commitment never wavered

Michael Laudrup insists he never wavered in his commitment to Swansea City this summer.

Laudrup was linked with the likes of PSG and Real Madrid during a nasty dispute with the board.

"Yes, there were clubs - a couple of big ones as well - who wanted me," he said.

"But it never became anything more than that. As I've said and confirmed many times, I wanted to stay and I told players when they asked me before they extended their contracts.

"I didn't want to run away from that.

"It's normal after a season which was good for everybody that there is a lot of interest and eyes on all of us - domestically and internationally.

"But I didn't have to speak to anyone because I want to stay here. Please, never again ask me about my future - it's a waste of time."
