Laszlo remains optimistic with a clutch of new players on the horizon

CSABA LASZLO today explained the difficulties of recruiting new faces to Hearts in a fiercely competitive transfer market, but the manager still hopes to have a goalkeeper and "two or three" new players in place for Motherwell's visit to Tynecastle on Saturday week.

"I hope against Motherwell we will have a new goalkeeper and two or three new players in the squad," he said. "The season is very long and if we have possibilities we will change something. I don't like to change everything. If I see something is okay, we don't change. If it is wrong, we change.

"In the next two or three days, maybe we will get new players. We don't have so much time. I think that at the moment everyone is working very hard to get everything finished. I don't like to wait so long. We have two very interesting friendly games and we must concentrate for these two games before the new season."

Laszlo reiterated the point that players he recommends to majority shareholder Vladimir Romanov must be worthy of a Hearts shirt. "If I make a proposal, I know the player. I don't make a proposal for trialists. I think this is amateur," he said.

"I would like to know everything about the player. I must know everything about the players who can help us. We have a lot of players from the academy and we have the possibility of players from Kaunas. If we take a player from somewhere he must be a player who can help the team.

"It is my job to give the owner value for money. We have responsibility to the club. If we give some money we want to get a very good player. It is not too easy to take a player who is very good, free in the market and who does not cost too much money.

"I think after one week everyone knows me better. I always think positive, not negative. If you think positive and you try to do the best with the negative things you can change your life and the attitude of the people around you.

"I am not a pessimist, I am optimistic."
