Laudrup delighted with new Swansea signings in Euro win

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup was delighted with his new players after their 4-0 Europa League rout of Malmo.

Laudrup was pleased to see £12million man Wilfried Bony break his duck at the earliest available opportunity, and promising signs that the Ivory Coast striker is forming a potent partnership with Michu.

The Dane was also delighted to see Bony's fellow new recruits Jonjo Shelvey, who excelled in midfield, Jordi Amat, Pozuelo and Jose Canas all fit in well on their debuts.

"Michu and Bony have only played together in the Reading friendly," he said.

"But we had other new players. Jordi in the back, Jonjo in midfield plus Pozuelo and Canas. If we win 4-0 and the players don't know each other that well then it's not bad."

He added, referring to Bony's contribution: "For every forward it is important to score goals early when you join a new club, especially when he has a price tag on him.

"They were two different goals and I'm pleased for him."
