Swansea boss Graham Potter insists bringing the club straight back to the Premier League in his first season will not be easy.
The Swans were relegated to the Championship last season and appointed Potter as part of a bold restructure of the club.
Potter, 43, managed Swedish club Ostersund for eight years, winning three promotions and the Svenska Cupen while playing an attractive brand of football.
However, the Englishman knows immediate success with his new club will be difficult.
“It’s not so straightforward. We’ve got to go through a transition, a restructure,” he told talkSPORT.
“For us, it’s not about worrying what’s going to happen in May.
“It’s about trying to focus on the next match which is Sheffield United away. That’s a difficult game and we’ll just concentrate on that.
“We know the Championship is very competitive, it’s a hugely challenging competition but that was the appeal of the job. The club had an identity, they lost it over a number of years, so the challenge now is to re-build that.”
Potter admits the club has made mistakes with transfers over the past few seasons, making it crucial they get it right this time round.
He added: “We’ve been working really, really hard to get the right players in. The recruitment and the playing style hasn’t necessarily been aligned over the last couple of years.
“A few mistakes have been made there which the club has admitted to.
“We need to try and bring the right players in and ones that are proud to play for Swansea City.”
