Hearts boss Laszlo gunning for "lazy" element

"I have one big problem here," Laszlo told Scotland on Sunday: "I have come to a club where I have met a lot of nice people. Now I would like to change this. I want to see a lot of hungry people. I want people who are hungry for success.

"I am a very bad guy and a lot of people don't accept me but I want to work for success and I want success. All my body language is about trying to gain success. If someone sees me on the training pitch, they will see a guy in the front who wants to be followed.

"A lot of people say bad things about Mr Romanov but I will tell you something about him. He has made a big mistake and the mistake is he has given these people a very nice life. And a lot of these people - not all - are lazy. They are lazy. I have said to Mr Romanov we must change this. We must be more professional. This isn't negative but in professional football if you have players who are successful they deserve to earn very good money. Players at clubs like Bayern Munich, Celtic and Rangers deserve money.

"But if you don't have success you can't cry out all of the time for money. A lot of people say bad things about Mr Romanov but maybe the biggest mistake he has made is putting a lot of money in the club and he hasn't got anything back.

"He must change his attitude and we must look right now at which characters deserve the money. We can give players a good salary but for the bonuses and success they must work very hard. This is a professional way of working and we must take this direction for everyone at the club. I know it's the same for me, if we don't have success I know what happens - I must look for a new job.

"The players need to be the same. If they don't do a good job and they don't like working we have to find a way to change it. Then if we have success we can all celebrate together."
