‘Mid-table job’ not for Laudrup

Laudrup, who left Swansea last year, is currently managing Qatari outfit Lekhwiya but there could be jobs available this summer on English soil with doubts surrounding the future of Sam Allardyce at West Ham and Newcastle United on the hunt for a new permanent manager.

However, the former Danish international has set his heart on taking a job with bigger aspirations rather than a ???mid-table??? club.

He told Spanish newspaper??Marca: ???It???s a time when many rumours appear, but there is nothing concrete. I am in the process of renewing [my contract] with Lekhwiya, they want me here. I will decide it in two weeks.

???I am not going to accept an offer from a mid-table club in England or Spain. They are experiences that I have already lived and, at this stage of my life as a coach, I look for new things. If a big club comes [calling], I will not say no to them, but I would like to try [coaching] in the United States if not given the opportunity.???
