Welsh legend John Toshack has likened Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup to Johan Cruyff.

Toshack wrote in the Daily Mail: "When I look at Swansea City's boss these days, I see Johan Cruyff. They were both wonderful players and the similarities as managers are stacking up.

"Just like Cruyff, Laudrup has an aura. And there are similarities between what is happening at Swansea and what Cruyff did while Laudrup was a player under him at the Nou Camp.

"It is entirely understandable that the Swansea boss is being looked at by Real Madrid, where Laudrup played from 1994 to 1996. I know they are looking at him. There is interest. But would Laudrup want to break one of football's perfect marriages?"
