Michael Laudrup says he won't wait for his compo case with Swansea City to be settled.

The Daily Mail says he is understood to be seeking compensation upwards of £3million from the Welsh club after his sacking, but despite those issues not yet being resolved, or apparently close to being concluded, Laudrup admitted he is keen for a quick return.

"If it takes a month or 18 months, why should I wait for that?" he said on Tuesday, speaking in Kuala Lumpur ahead of the Laureus World Sports Awards. "That doesn't change a lot for me.

"I don't want to mix the two things. One has nothing to do with the other. Whatever happens there, wherever it ends, in a settlement or court, I can still take a job tomorrow."
