Swansea chief Jenkins calm on Laudrup talks

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says the club has not spoken about the future of manager Michael Laudrup.

Reports have emerged that the Dane's position at the Liberty Stadium is under question after the weekend's 2-0 loss to West Ham United.

The defeat, which was Swansea's sixth in their past eight league outings, sees the Welsh club sitting just two points above the relegation zone but Jenkins insists there is no hurry to hold crisis talks with Laudrup.

"I haven't heard anything in reference to Michael and neither have we met, or discussed, or done anything about Michael," Jenkins said as the Swans get set for a vital Welsh derby with Cardiff City on Saturday.

"A couple of us did actually meet up on Sunday morning to have a cup of coffee like we normally do. That's as simple as it was. That's where the first rumour came from.

"It's difficult for me to say anything because there isn't anything to discuss.

"When you end up losing matches, when everything is so tight at the bottom of the Premier League, you get rumours and you get stories. We have had them for many weeks. If we win everything is fine. If we lose it's not.

"The bigger picture as always is winning a Premier League match and it so happens this week we are playing Cardiff.

"Winning the match, I can assure you, is the most important thing for both teams."
