Laudrup: No Swansea pressure

Michael Laudrup has insisted that Swansea are under no pressure tomorrow when they face Valencia in the Europa League.

The Premier League side face Los Che at Mestalla on Thursday, and the Danish Coach is confident that his men can rise to the occasion.

 “It’s a great experience,” he said. “We are now in the group stages of the competition and face a huge club in the form of Valencia.

“They have a long history, and they are still a great team. They are the favourites to win the group, but we have a lot of possibilities.

“But there is no pressure on us so we’re hoping for a good result. I’m looking forward to the game.”

 “I’m thinking about different things and how we want to play.

“But we have another game in three days so I still have things to think about.

“However, if the team can reach the levels we know we are capable of, then we can progress from the group.

“It’s not like years ago where there were typical styles – it’s very different these days. We may well have more Spanish players than Valencia have in their starting line-up though!”
