PLAYERS: Michael Laudrup
Welsh legend John Toshack had a say in Michael Laudrup’s appointment as Swansea City manager.

More recently, the former Wales manager, who was in charge at Real Sociedad and Deportivo while Laudrup was playing for Real Madrid and Barcelona, has been working alongside the Dane as a TV pundit in Spain.
