The Swans lifted the trophy courtesy of a 5-0 victory over League Two Bradford and it was a thoroughly impressive performance from the Welsh side.

It's the club's only major cup triumph in their 100-year existence and means they'll compete in Europe in the 2013-14 season.

Manager Michael Laudrup has earned rave reviews during his time at the Liberty Stadium and can now look forward to testing his managerial ability against some of Europe's biggest clubs.

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "They're one of the first teams to secure their place in the Europa League next season, but it's a tall order for the Swans to go all the way.

"Laudrup is a real classy character and has turned a few heads this season. We have him in the running for some of the biggest jobs in the country, but Swansea will be desperate to keep him in charge."

Laudrup is 5/1 to be the next manager of Chelsea after Rafa Benitez, while he is priced at 8/1 to be the next boss of Arsenal.

He's also in the betting to be the next boss of Real Madrid (8/1) and Man City (16/1).
