Laudrup sticking with Swans ethos
Michael Laudrup has vowed Swansea will continue to play their traditional passing game under his leadership.
The former Denmark international has been named as successor to Brendan Rodgers who joined Liverpool earlier this month, penning a two-year contract with the Premier League club.
Laudrup won five Spanish league titles with Barcelona and Real Madrid in the early 1990s and the creative midfielder was one of the players of his generation.
The 48-year-old intends to continue a philosophy of slick play which helped keep the Welsh club up after what was their first taste of the Premier League.
"Everyone knows the style of football Swansea play and it suits my way of thinking," Laudrup said on the club's official website, www.swanseacity.net.
"I have spoken to the chairman and I am very pleased to sign for Swansea City. It is going to be a new experience for me and I am really looking forward to it. I have spoken to many people about Swansea and watched a number of their games on DVD - with many more to watch."
