Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino admits he's "excited" to be facing Swansea City's Michael Laudrup.

Pochettino comes up against ex-Barcelona and Real Madrid ace Laudrup, who also coached Getafe and Mallorca.

"I'm very pleased and excited about meeting him and about playing against them, because they promote a style of football that's very similar to ours. Hopefully we'll see a good spectacle in the football," said Pochettino.
