Laudrup admitted he would have loved to score Hooperâ€™s sublime volley in Norwich Cityâ€™s 1-1 Premier League weekend draw against the Welsh side.
â€śI would have loved to have scored a goal like that. Maybe he could have waited a week to score a goal like that,â€ť said Laudrup. â€śYou have to say it was a fantastic goal. You could always argue about the fact there might be a problem with the distance between the two defenders and the midfield because it was a long ball and I think (Johan) Elmander just dropped it off on his chest and Hooper smashed it. Maybe the distance was too big between the two lines but the strike was fantastic.
â€śI liked what I saw from him. I think he mixed a lot of good movements. He is always a threat to a defence because of his movement. Norwich play that way with Elmander next to him and two strikers - not too many play that way these days but he is the type who can run off another player and if he scores goals like that then anything is possible.â€ť
