Swansea fullback Tate admits not getting along with Laudrup

Swansea City fullback Alan Tate admits not seeing eye-to-eye with former manager Michael Laudrup.

He found himself out in the cold after Laudrup decided he was not part of his plans in September 2012.

Tate said: "It was before the Everton game. I didn't know that I wasn't going to be captain. He took the captaincy off me, but didn't tell me and things went from there, really.

"I've been a Swansea player for 12 years, but sometimes a new manager comes in and you don't get on with him. He wasn't really my type of person."
