Paulo Sergio is confident that he knows his squad well enough ahead of their Paks clash.

New Hearts manager Paulo Sergio has said that he has enough knowledge of his team ahead of their Europa League third qualifying round match against Paks tonight, despite meeting the players just two days ago.

The 43-year-old, who was appointed as Jim Jefferies' successor on Tuesday, was keen to pay homage to the squad.

"I haven't slept for three days because I'm very keen to see all the players," he said.

"With the internet and DVDs you have so much material. We almost see all the players we have at Hearts, two, three or four games.

"I think we have good players. I believe in their quality, I believe in their commitment to the club and the future because they are professionals.

"I like the way they received us in training. I'm pleased to work with them. I'm sure we're going to have a good relationship. It's very important to have a good relationship with your group of players to be successful."

Hearts, who host Paks at Tynecastle tonight, hold the advantage after drawing 1-1 in the first leg in Hungary.
