Real Madrid target Laudrup happy at Swansea

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says he's happy working in Wales.

Laudrup has been mentioned as a candidate to succeed Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

"It is nice to work with players and it is different over here because the managers have a lot more influence on who is coming and going," he said. "I prefer that because it is my responsibility because if things are not going well I am the one being sacked.

"That is why the manager should have some influence instead of just being the trainer of the team with another person sitting behind a desk who can buy and sell players."
