Swansea boss Laudrup buzzing to reach Cup semis

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is proud to have reached the Capital One Cup semis after victory over Middlesbrough.

Swansea will resume league business with a trip to Tottenham on Sunday, but they can head to north London elated at securing a first semi-final appearance in a major cup competition since 1964.

Laudrup said: "It's fantastic to reach a semi-final.

"I asked all the players before the game if any of them had played in a cup final, and no-one had.

"When you are three games from a final you get tense, and that is what we saw tonight.

"Everyone can be proud we are in the semi-finals, but when you are there you want to go the next step and be in the final. Whoever we play next, it will be very special."
