Swansea lie 11th in the table, four places ahead of Wigan, who have former Swans boss Roberto Martinez in charge.
And Laudrup paid tribute to the work the Spaniard has done, in south Wales and at the DW Stadium.
He said: "He deserves a lot of credit, he plays another system in Wigan than he did here but he wants to play football, although he is Spanish so it is not a big surprise.
"To be honest I think Wigan deserve more points than they have. I have seen nearly all their games and in at least two of them they have deserved much more than they achieved, against Sunderland for instance.
"But maybe we have deserved a couple of better results, but we can't turn back the clock, we can only look forward and that is what we are doing."
