Laudrup must now rally his players after derby despair for Thursdayâ€™s Europa League trip to Kuban Krasnodar, the Swansea party facing a five-hour flight to Russia tomorrow morning.
â€śYes, itâ€™s always good to have another game but itâ€™s another competition,â€ť he said.
â€śOur next game in the Premier League is on Sunday... and fortunately the game on Thursday is only a five-hour flight away and a four-hour time difference!
â€śItâ€™s a lot of travelling but Iâ€™ve said a lot of times before the team has character and they will show it.
â€ś I am sure we will see a reaction from the team in our next game because they are so disappointed at this loss."
