New Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has admitted he had to research the club before accepting the offer to succeed Brendan Rodgers.

Laudrup also revealed he did not intend to make wholesale changes to the backroom staff at the Liberty Stadium or bring in a host of new players. The 48-year-old former Barcelona and Real Madrid midfielder said: "I didn't know so much (about Swansea), to be honest.

"I think the research is very important. If I had done some more research in former jobs I might have taken some other decisions," added Laudrup, who has also coached Getafe, Spartak Moscow and Real Mallorca. The people I talked to were very positive (about Swansea). People said 'Michael it would be a good club for you'."
