Michael Laudrup hails Swansea City performance

Michael Laudrup praises his side's performance in the Europa League win, saying that they now must "finish the job".

Michael Laudrup has revealed that he was pleased with the performance of his players in tonight's Europa League win.

Swansea City dominated much of the match and put five goals past their opponents, who grabbed a late consolation.

The result means that Swansea, who beat Malmo in the previous round, go into the second leg next week in a strong position.

"I think we dominated. They scored a goal but it was a difficult one to avoid and was a great goal," Laudrup is quoted as saying in The Mirror.

"To win 5-1 is a fantastic result before the second leg. My players did well, especially in the first half.

"We are very close to getting to another historical moment by reaching the group stage. We have to finish the job."

The Swans travel to Romania next Thursday.
