Swansea players happy Laudrup gone

Swansea City players are happy to see former manager Michael Laudrup gone.

The Mirror says Laudrup's departure was met with a huge sigh of relief within the dressing room.

There was a lack of discipline, dressing room bust-ups, cliques and Laudrup's relationship with chairman Huw Jenkins had long since broken down when the axe fell on Tuesday evening.

The cliques at the training ground had become so bad that a rule had to be introduced that only three Spanish players were allowed to sit at each table when the squad had lunch.

The players complained Laudrup was aloof, not interested in training and even refused to take sessions when it was raining.

When they went to Dubai for a training camp, the only rules enforced were that the players had to be on the bus for 11am and back on it by 1pm.

Much of the training camp was spent drinking. The players wanted discipline - and did not get it.

And that was typical of Laudrup's reign.
