COPENHAGEN, Feb 23 (Reuters) - Allan Hansen was elected president of the Danish soccer association (DBU) on Saturday, replacing Poul Hyldgaard who retires after 11 years.

"I want to work at shaping the DBU into a united organisation, but I am actually glad to know many things have been going well at the DBU," Hansen said on the association's website.

"We're in need of new ways of thinking," Hansen added. "It's my opinion that now is the time for dialogue."

Hansen, 52, has been a member of the DBU board since 1997.

Denmark have been drawn with holders France, Uruguay and Senegal in the group phase of this year's World Cup.
