Laudrup won't allow Swansea compo row to delay management return

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."
