One-time Barca legend endorses move for Swansea boss.
Former Barcelona and Spain international defender Albert Ferrer says that his former club, as well as Real Madrid, are both keen to have Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup as their next head coach.
Laudrup, who played for both Spanish giants in the late Eighties and early Nineties, led the South Wales club to their first-ever trophy on Sunday when they thrashed Bradford City 5-0 in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley
“He could go to Real Madrid or Barcelona,” Ferrer told BBC Sport.
“He has been a player of both teams. Barcelona supporters and Real Madrid supporters all love Michael Laudrup because of the way he is.
“So he could end up in any of those two big teams.
“I think they can go for Michael but I’m not sure if it’s going to be his decision. He is very happy at Swansea and is very happy working in the Premiership. I don’t know what he is thinking but if he was to take a big project and be under pressure week after week, is that something he really wants to do?
“He has already managed in Spain, he was the manager of Getafe and Mallorca, so he knows the Spanish league perfectly well.
“The success he has had with Swansea is more [about] the success in the way they play football. That is really attractive for the big clubs.”
