Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup has laughed off talk of succeeding Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

Laudrup topped a poll in one Spanish paper as a potential successor for Mourinho at his former club Real Madrid.

He was pleased to hear it, too. . . "yes, always when somebody talks about you."

Not that he doesn't admit his association with the club will have played a part in what at this stage is a somewhat fanciful link.

"You have to remember that I have a lot of friends there," he said.
