SWANSEA boss Michael Laudrup issued an apology to the club’s travelling fans yesterday, after his team were hammered by Liverpool at Anfield.

Steven Gerrard opened the scoring from the spot on 34 minutes, before a flood of second half goals from Philippe Coutinho, Jose Enrique, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge secured the rout.

“It was a nightmare, we got slaughtered out there,” admitted Laudrup, who rested several key players ahead of this Sunday’s Capital One Cup final against Bradford at Wembley.

“In a couple of positions I wanted to leave a few out, but that’s not an excuse; we could have lost 10-0. We have to say sorry to the fans.”

The result saw Liverpool leapfrog Swansea and West Brom into seventh place in the Premier League table.
