“It will be difficult but if we keep our best players and the manager, I think we can do well [in Europe]”

Laudrup won four straight La Liga championships with Barcelona as a player and their current manager Tito Vilanova is in New York receiving treatment for cancer and is not expected back at the club until March.
However, Coleman believes that having seen previous successful managers Roberto Martinez (Wigan) and Brendan Rodgers (Liverpool) being tempted away, Swansea would move swiftly and successfully to replace Laudrup.
"When a club does as well as Swansea City has done, you're going to pick out the best players, the manager," said Swansea-born Coleman.
"Plus if they do lose Michael Laudrup - I hope they don't and I'm not saying they will - Swansea will be clever in who they appoint.
"And they've done it all along since they lost Roberto Martinez.
"They've always replaced one manager with another [with a very] similar style."
