Huw Jenkins: Laudrup deal is a 'major boost'

The Swansea City chairman, Huw Jenkins, has described Laudrup's contract extension as a 'major boost' for everyone involved in the club.

You can never guarantee how things will work out when you employ a new manager, especially after the success we’ve had in recent seasons, but I think everyone has seen for themselves that Michael has helped take this football club to another level.

He is a pleasure to work with because he shares the same philosophy as everyone at this football club.

He has ensured that we have progressed again this season and I am convinced his knowledge, experience and expertise will ensure we keep moving forward for the next few years.
