MICHAEL Laudrup believes Swansea City's explosive start was behind their Capital One Cup triumph over Bradford.
Swansea dominated from the opening whistle against their League Two opponents.
An their pressure paid off when Nathan Dyer grabbed the opening goal after 16 minutes.
Laudrup said: "I am very proud.
"We knew what Bradford had done on their way to the final, but after the second goal I think we could see the difference between the sides.
"They had never been behind against a Premier League team and we had to move the ball with pace and get the first goal.
"The first trophy is always very special."
