New Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says he doesn't need to make big changes at his new club.
The Danish legend was unveiled as the club's new manager at a press conference today and there he spoke about how he was convinced to move to the Liberty Stadium.
The 48 year-old admitted that he had to do his research on the small Premier League club, and he revealed all the positive feedback, along with the club's reputation of playing attractive football persuaded him to sign a two-year contract.
Regarded as Denmark's best ever player, Laudrup was used to winning League titles, including 5 in Spain's La Liga and surely he'll have the pulling power to make some exciting signings during his time in South Wales.
He admits that it's going to be a tough challenge but it's one he looks forward to - Laudrup told the media:
'I'm very happy to be here,'
'It's a huge challenge for myself, but as soon as I heard that Swansea were interested I looked into what kind of football they played.
'They play the way that I like to play and the club's philosophy is very much the same as mine and that is one of the main reasons why I'm here.
'It's always a difficult decision to change country and embrace new cultures, but after thinking about it I made the decision and I'm sure I'll be very happy here.'
Laudrup also said he won't need to make big changes to the squad:
'At the beginning I would like to see how things work here, get my first impressions and then after a period of time, look to improve and make small changes,'
'But change for changings sake is not good. It doesn't make sense to bring in seven or eight players, but I will have a look at things and see where we can improve.
'The club had a fantastic season last year and did very well to finish 11th. The second season is always difficult at the highest level but we have to find new targets.'
