Swansea boss Laudrup admits keeper dilemma

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup admits he faces a goalkeeper selection dilemma.

He welcomes No1 stopper Michel Vorm back from injury for Saturday's home clash with Norwich.

But Laudrup confesses back-up Gerhard Tremmel has played out of his skin as the Welsh club have continued their rise up the Premier League table.

He said: "Gerhard has been getting better and better with every game. Being the second goalkeeper is probably the most difficult position in the squad because if the first choice is not injured you never play.

"Gerhard's done really great, especially in the last two or three games. He is looking very secure and I'm happy for him.

"I won't say yes or no that I will keep him in. That's too simple. If someone has shown you during a long period to be number one and he is out for one, two or six games and comes back then it's difficult to say now you are not playing.

"Michel has shown that he is a number one but obviously as a player you can't stand still.

"You have to come in and show that you are the best because there is always competition."
