MICHAEL Laudrup has saluted Morten Wieghorst amid suggestions that Swansea City’s assistant manager could be a contender for the Danish national job.
Denmark are reportedly considering the position of current coach Morten Olsen having failed to qualify for the World Cup.
And though Laudrup insists he will not tell his country who to appoint, Denmark’s finest footballing son reckons Wieghorst has all the tools required for the job.
“I won’t recommend a coach to the DBU, but if I am asked directly about Morten Wieghorst, with whom I work on a daily basis, I think he has the things that are needed to be successful as Danish national coach,” Laudrup said.
“Wieghorst has the tactical and technical insight that is needed.
“He has personality and he knows many of the players, partly from his time as under-21 coach, partly from his time in both the A team and the league.”
Wieghorst left his job as Denmark Under-21 boss to join Swansea last February.
