LONDON (AFP) - Former Swansea manager Michael Laudrup continued to hit out at his "silly" and "incredible" sacking by the Premier League club on Tuesday as he vowed to maintain his legal action against the Welsh side.

A fortnight ago the Denmark football great was dismissed by Swansea, less than a year after guiding the club to the first major trophy in its history - the English League Cup.

At the time Laudrup issued a statement via England's League Managers' Association that he would take legal action against the south Wales side.

Since then he'd said nothing in public about his dismissal but on Tuesday he took the extremely unusual step of calling a press conference at a hotel near London's Heathrow Airport to air his grievances.
