LaudrupWest Ham v Swansea City

Match reaction

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup rushed to Andy Carroll’s defence after the big fella was sent off after clashing with Chico Flores.

Honest Laudrup claimed that the Geordie striker should not have been sent off saying: “I don’t think that was a red card.

“He gave it of course but from the bench I thought it was a little harsh.”
