Laudrup warns Coleman over Williams

Ashley Williams remains sidelined for Swansea's Europa League meeting with St Gallen, and manager Michael Laudrup has again urged Wales boss Chris Coleman to prioritise the defender's welfare ahead of his own concerns.

Coleman, who names his Wales squad on Thursday, will desperately want to include Williams in his team to play Macedonia and Belgium, with his position under scrutiny with the nation bottom of their World Cup qualifying group.

We have not spoken, I haven't had time. Let's see what happens in the next few days and what we decide for Sunday.

If Ashley is playing or not, I am saying he should still go with Wales so the medical staff can look at him and then do the best for one person, for Ashley - not Swansea or the national side.
