Michu says goodbye to Swansea with emotional tweet and video


The Spaniard is leaving the Liberty Stadium after both the player and club agreed to terminate his deal with the Swans.

Michu has said goodbye to Swansea City with an emotional tweet that also incorporated an official video showcasing some of the Spaniard’s greatest moments at the club.

The Swans have released the 29-year-old following a difficult injury-hit couple of seasons with the Welsh side, as confirmed via their official website.

Signed from Rayo Vallecano for just £2 million in the summer of 2012, Michu made an instant impact, scoring a brace on his Premier League debut against Queens Park Rangers.

In all, the Spaniard managed 22 goals in 43 games during his debut season at Swansea, helping the club to a memorable League Cup win over Bradford City at Wembley in the process.

Yet injuries and a loss of form curtailed his impact in the 2013-14 campaign, with Michu managing just six goals in 24 outings for the Swans.

Despite this he still earned a call-up to the Spain national team and looked set for even bigger things after moving to Napoli on loan the following year.

Injuries once again took hold, however, with the 29-year-old making just five appearances all season for the Partenopei.

Back at Swansea but seemingly out of the first-team picture, Michu’s departure was confirmed today, with the Spaniard tweeting out a simple but fitting tribute to the club where he made his name, along with a video of some of his best ever goals.

Now likely to head back to Spain in a bid to regain his fitness ahead of a possible move this January, Michu will be fondly remembered by Premier League fans for his goals, smiles and trademark celebration.
