Swansea boss Laudrup knows he must win over doubters

New Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup accepts there's doubters about his appointment.

The Great Dane replaced Brendan Rodgers in the Liberty Stadium hotseat last week - his sixth coaching post.

Laudrup said: "It's true that I have something to prove as a manager. The Danish league is the Danish league and, while some people from the UK might remember the season I had with Getafe, it was four years ago.

"In Spain I worked at the top level but this is different. It will be very difficult because normally you are from the country or have been playing there.

"When I was in Spain I was Michael Laudrup and I'd played for Barcelona and Real Madrid. It would be the same as if I'd played against Man United or Arsenal for ten years.

"So I have to show what I can do and that's fine. It suits me well. I am looking forward to competing at this level."
