Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup sees No2 Morten Wieghorst as his potential successor.

Laudrup says Swansea might not have to look far to find his replacement with his No.2 and fellow countryman Wieghorst capable of filling the role one day.

“I certainly believe he can be manager here,” Laudrup said about the former Celtic and Denmark defender who only joined him in South Wales last month.

“He has experience from Scottish football and is familiar with (English football). He has shown ability in Denmark, both with FC Nordsjaelland and the under-21 national team.”
