Encouraging Signs For Laudrup After 4-2 Win

Encouraging Signs For Laudrup After 4-2 Win

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup said he 'saw what he wanted' from his side in their 4-2 home friendly win against Blackpool.

The 48 year-old was particularly pleased with the way his side maintained possession, the three new signings and their defensive display.

However, he also says that there is room for improvement, as he'll hope for even better when the Swans host Stuttgart on Saturday (3pm).

Laudrup told the Official Site:

"It was the first game at home and we know that our home form is going to be very important for us this season, so to start with a win and four goals was very nice,"

"I saw what I wanted; we kept possession well, the three new players slotted in nicely and in some moments we played some really good football.

"Defensively we were very good and we created seven or eight great chances. We still need to get better but that`s normal for every team."


Laudrup also praised Graham for his hatrick:

"Strikers live for goals, and Danny is no different,"

"To get a hat-trick, even in a friendly, is always good for confidence and you can see that he is someone who likes scoring goals.

"All three strikes were different, he showed great composure for his second goal and it was also great for Michu to get a goal and overall, I was pleased with what I saw.

Also, there is competition for places and that is good for us ahead of the new season."
