Michael Laudrup says he won't make 'change for change's sake' at Swansea City.

Speaking at his first press conference since taking over as Swans Manager, Laudrup confirmed that he'd be bringing in Eric Larssen as part of his backroom team.

The former Danish international, who's signed a two-year contract at the Liberty Stadium, replaces Brendan Rodgers, who left to manage Liverpool.

Giving his reasons for taking the helm at Swansea, Laudrup said:

"I like the philosophy of the club. That's why I agreed to join. It's a very nice place, although it is raining a little more than Majorca!"

Swansea finished 11th in their first season in the Premier League. Their challenge is to improve on that this season.
