Former Denmark international Michael Laudrup has been appointed the new manager of Swansea City.
The former Brondby, Getafe, Spartak Moscow and Real Mallorca boss has penned a two-year-deal with the premier league club.
He replaces Brendan Rodgers, who left to join Liverpool at the end of last month.
It’s a fitting birthday present for Laudrup, who turns 48 today.
Laudrup has been described as one of the players of his generation, winning five Spanish league titles with Barcelona and Real Madrid in the early 1990s, but has yet to replicate that success as a manager.
However, Laudrup's former team-mate Jan Molby believes this is his opportunity to make an impact as a top-flight manager.
