The Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has come under criticism in the last few matches due to the inability of the team to get the results. Swansea was extremely praised in the opening few matches of the campaign for the style of football and also for the extraordinary results, which saw them score a lot of goals.
However, the last few weeks have certainly been tough for the former Barcelona midfielder, who is known for his passing style of football. As a result, it is not surprising to learn that the former Getafe manager has said that he will not be changing his style despite the lack of results.
After opening the season with two wins out of the two matches, it has been five matches without a victory for Swansea. Even more alarming is the fact that they have conceded a lot of goals in these matches. Swansea have conceded more than two goals in all of the last five matches and many pundits reckon that it will be tough for the team to carry on playing this way and stay in the Premier league. Swansea recently managed a stunning comeback in the match against Reading. Swansea managed a 2-2 draw with the newly promoted club.
“Given the way we play, it could be easier if we just played direct every time. When you lose games and the confidence is not the highest, it would probably be easier to just pump the ball up there to the two up front and see what happens. But it is not the way we play and we will continue playing as we do. We have to do it this way, otherwise we will struggle,” said Michael Laudrup after the Reading match. Swansea will be facing the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea in the next three matches.
