Swansea boss Laudrup: Foreigners know derby importance

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is confident his foreign players realise the importance of the Welsh derby.

Laudrup is confident his foreign contingent fully understands the meaning of the game.

"You cannot ask a guy from Spain to understand it completely, but they have their own derbies," he said.

"We have players who played in Sevilla v Real Betis, which is a huge derby in Spain. They know when they hear the word 'derby', they know what it means, perhaps not exactly what it is here, but wherever you are around the world there is always one thing in common; the importance to the fans."
