MICHAEL Laudrup’s future is not on the agenda - for the moment at least - in the eyes of Swansea City’s owners.
Rumours have swept the city in the wake of Saturday’s passionless defeat at West Ham United that Laudrup’s position could be under threat.
Swansea are only two points above the Premier League relegation zone having won just one of their last ten top-flight games.
And their performance in a game which had been billed as key by Laudrup was dismal.
As a result, there has been speculation among fans that the Dane could be relieved of his duties ahead of next weekend’s South Wales derby.
But as things stand, Swansea’s decision-makers are not considering making a change.
The current regime have not sacked a boss since Brian Flynn was shown the door a decade ago.
And though there is disappointment over the way Swansea are performing within the boardroom – and concern about where the club will finish this season - Laudrup’s job is safe for now.
"I haven't heard anything in reference to Michael and neither have we met, or discussed, or done anything about Michael," said Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins.
"A couple of us did actually meet up on Sunday morning to have a cup of coffee like we normally do. That's as simple as it was.
"That's where the first rumour came from.
"It's difficult for me to say anything because there isn't anything to discuss."
Laudrup came close to leaving Swansea last summer and, though his contract runs until 2015, it would be no surprise should he say his farewells come the end of this campaign.
But regardless of what might lie ahead in the summer, Swansea would prefer to get through to the end of 2013-14 without the disruption that comes with a managerial change.
"The bigger picture as always is winning a Premier League match and it so happens this week we are playing Cardiff," added Jenkins.
"Winning the match I can assure you is the most important thing for both teams.
"When you end up losing matches, when everything is so tight at the bottom of the Premier League, you get rumours and you get stories.
"We have had them for many weeks. If we win everything is fine. If we lose it's not."
There has also been some talk that Laudrup might walk away before the end of the season, but that is thought highly unlikely to happen.
The Swansea manager is currently abroad, but will be back on duty on Tuesday when his players begin building up to the Cardiff clash.
