Laudrup open to Sinclair return

SoccerNews in General Soccer News 3 May 2013


Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup has left the door open for Scott Sinclair to return from Manchester City.

The former Chelsea winger made the move to Roberto Mancini’s side last August for 6.2 million pounds but has struggled to get first-team starts.

Sinclair was an integral part of the Brendan Rodgers side that gained promotion to the Premier League before City swooped to take him away from the Liberty Stadium.

Laudrup said: “We have to make some decisions when we start talking to people about what is possible and what is not.

“Because it is one thing having names on paper and another when you start talking about salaries, transfers and all that.

“But he (Sinclair) has quality. He has already shown it and we will see what decisions we make on that for the future.

“Good players in his position are always an option and he has a British passport which is another thing we have to look at in an overall perspective.”

The goalscoring load has been largely on Michu this season and Laudrup is keen to spread the foals out more evenly next season.

He added: “That’s one thing to consider. We need more goals next year. We cannot expect Michu to score as many goals.

“We’ve scored 43 goals this season, one less than last season, and we have four games to go. But many of them have come from one player and you cannot put so much pressure on his shoulders.

“I would love Michu to repeat his goalscoring numbers next year, but we cannot expect it so we have to divide the goals out to more players.

“We will need to bring in somebody who has scored goals on a regular basis in their career.”
