Laudrup not worried as Swansea prepare for Rodgers' Liverpool

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup does not feel that this week's clash with Liverpool takes on any added importance due to two of the Swans' former men now being in the Reds camp.

Ex-Swans boss Brendan Rodgers and midfielder Joe Allen are now plying their trade at Anfield but Laudrup does not believe that Wednesday's Capital One Cup meeting will hold an extra significance.

"For me this is nothing different, I want to win all the games," he told BBC Sport.

"I know there is something special when you see former players and coaches, but for me it is Swansea against Liverpool, not against Brendan Rodgers or Joe Allen.

"It's at Anfield and it is a big game in a competition where if we win we can claim a place in the record books of Swansea City.

"I want to win every game we play, not only the ones where we are against ex-managers. There was one of those 10 days ago [against Roberto Martinez's Wigan] and we won that."
