In a one-sided affair on Sunday, Swansea demolished League Two club Bradford City 5-0 to win the first major trophy in their 101-year history.

As a player, Laudrup won league titles in Spain, Italy and the Netherlands in a much-vaunted career that included spells with Juventus, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Ajax Amsterdam, but the former attacking midfielder took special pride in Swansea's win at Wembley.
