Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says that he will never release a book about his dealings with individual players.

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has vowed never to discuss his dealings with certain players following the release of Sir Alex Ferguson's new autobiography.

The former Manchester United boss's book contains the details of a number of high-profile incidents and players that passed through Old Trafford during his 26 years in charge.

However, Laudrup does not believe that the Scot should be divulging such information, although he apportions some of the blame to the media for creating such a storm.

"Don't expect me in five or 10 years' time to talk about what really happened with our penalty at Wembley and whether I said anything to this player or that player," the Dane told reporters. "People are always saying what happens in the dressing room stays in the dressing room.

"If we are talking about a guy like Ferguson, I am sure there is a lot of really good stuff in there talking about and explaining games, tactics, systems that everybody could learn from, but the headlines are all about these things about one player, or the other player wanting to leave.

"I saw some of the headlines yesterday, I refuse to believe that that is the most interesting stuff in the book. What Ferguson has achieved in so many years, there must be so many interesting things, so then I point my fingers at you guys (the media) about how can it be so interesting what happened one day with Roy Keane or a boot in the head of [David] Beckham and why that happened?"

The book was officially published yesterday.

Alex Ferguson and Roy Keane lift the Premier League trophy aloft in May 2001.
