Michael Laudrup was approached for the managerial job by the Football association of Denmark, but, he refused to accept the offer.
A statement released by the association read, “We tried to get Michael on board, but, it did not materialize. He is not willing to take up the job right now because of private reasons.”
Laudrup is the 5th most capped player for Denmark till date.
He was an absolute superstar in the soccer world in the eighties and the nineties.
The 51-year old, who was a playmaker, made more than 100 appearances for the Red and White.
Laudrup has pursued a career in management and has had the opportunity to manage clubs in different countries, but, he has not had as much of success in that field as he had as a player.
He is currently jobless after parting ways with Lekhwiya a few months ago.
