The Dane has signed a one-year contract with the champions of Qatar.

“I’m heading into my last phase as a coach,” Laudrup told Politiken newspaper. “But whether Lekhwiya will be my last or second-last team remains to be seen.”

“And I don’t know it the phase will stretch over two, three or four years. The answer is blowing in the wind.”

The 50-year-old previously managed Brondby, Getafe, Spartak Moscow and Mallorca before his spell in the Premier League.

He was guided Swansea to the League Cup but was sacked in February.

He played for the likes of Juventus, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Ajax during a legendary playing career.
