'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Laudrup Appreciates Common Sense Approach

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says he respects the club's 'common sense approach' as he prepares for his first full season in charge of his new club.

While Swansea's cautious spending habits would frustrate a lot of other managers out there, Laudrup respects the way the club works with its money. He's obviously very happy with the way the club do their business, having put pen to paper on a two-year contract at the Liberty Stadium.

The Danish legend is fully aware that it will be a tough challenge for him, but it's one he's looking forward to. It'll be his first ever season working in the Premier League and he admitted that it was an opportunity he didn't want to regret in years to come.

You may claim that it'll also be tough for Laudrup because not only does he not know much about the Premier League, but he won't have a lot of transfer fee and wage money to use in the Summer. It doesn't look like he'll need it though as he admits he doesn't think he needs to make many changes to his squad to make things work well for him in 2012/13.

Changes won't be made for the sake of it either, and managers often find it difficult to gain both success on the pitch while making big changes off it.

Laudrup said:

'Things here are done quietly and with common sense - something I really like and appreciate,'

'As a youngster, when I was living in Denmark we used to watch English football on television,'

'I always thought there was something special about the atmosphere in English football.

'This is a great opportunity for me. It's a big challenge, but I did not want to be sitting on the couch at home in 15 years' time saying to myself, 'Why didn't I do it?''
