Michael Laudrup: No plans for anymore Spanish signings

The Swans have added to their Spanish contingent this summer by bringing Jose Canas, Jordi Amat and Alejandro Pozuelo to the Liberty Stadium.

It means there are seven Spaniards in Laudrup's squad now and the Dane has revealed he will not be looking to raid La Liga for any futher Spanish signings.

"We have seven Spanish players now and we have more or less reached a limit. They are all very nice guys but this is still a Welsh team - a British team," said Laudrup told.

"The Premier League and La Liga are the top two leagues but there is an economic difference because of the financial crisis.

"We can have two players at the same level and one will cost £4m and the other £8m - which would you choose?

"The problem is one player is Spanish and the other is British. But you can't choose the £4m man every time or you will have 11 Spanish players.

"That's why I am very pleased we have a player like Jonjo Shelvey. He has quality, he's young but experienced and I hear the value for money is good. When you have the possibility to get a talent like that, it's good."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
