Michael Laudrup will waste no time in getting to know just what his Swansea squad are capable of after taking over at Liberty Stadium on a two-year deal.

The former Denmark international was named as successor to Brendan Rodgers, who joined Liverpool earlier this month. Laudrup will do plenty of research on the job in front of him as he prepares to tackle the English top flight.

"It is going to be a new experience for me and I am really looking forward to it," he said. "I have spoken to many people about Swansea and watched a number of their games on DVD - with many more to watch. Everyone knows the style of football Swansea play and it suits my way of thinking."
