Laudrup Purrs At Swans Performance

Swansea coach, Michael Laudrup, was elated after his side's demolition job on Valencia in the Europa League last night.

Hot on the heels of their draining 2-2 draw with Liverpool, there were concerns that the Swans could be swept aside on their visit to the Mestalla.

But they found a Los Che in disarray, and proceeded to dismantle them with three unanswered goals, scored in the eye-catching style they have come to represent.

Swansea were aided by the early sending off of Valencia defender Adil Rami, but that should not take the gloss off what was a superlative continental performance.

"It was a fantastic game. Of course a red card early in the game has an influence but in my many years in football I have seen sides go down to 10 at home in these kind of games and still win,” Laudrup purred afterwards.

"But we dominated the game from the first minute to the last minute.

"We scored three goals, and before the second we had two or three huge chances to score and it could have been even more.

"I am very pleased about winning here against a big side like Valencia."

For the past few seasons, the Swans have been impressive. But their easy win over Valencia suggests that they have finally arrived.

In Wilfried Bony they have an accomplished striker, who appears to relish scoring goals on the European stage.

And in Michu they have a club icon who simply carries on delivering the goods.

Meanwhile, Jonathan de Guzman’s stunning free-kick is European moment that will live long in Swansea’s memories.
