Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup has praised the board for their summer transfer campaign.
Laudrup has suggested there were frustrations behind the scenes but insists the problems were not down to his transfer budget, but rather getting a consensus that Swansea needed to go on a recruitment drive.
"The board have delivered on signings," Laudrup told the South Wales Echo.
"But it wasn't about saying I wanted this, this and this. Or I want £18m, £21m or £24m.
"It was about knowing we had to strengthen our team.
"We achieved so much last season, but just to maintain that position we had to improve.
"We've bought in the right standard of player."
