Swansea City striker Michu admits he grew up Arsenal mad!

Michu put his boyhood heroes to the sword earlier this season at the Emirates.

He told The Sun: “When I was young my team in the UK was always Arsenal. They had really good players — Bergkamp and Henry and they played really good football.

“Both of them were my favourites. They had so much quality, they won a lot of trophies. I remember Bergkamp’s goal against Newcastle when he turned the defender and scored. It was a great goal.

“And Henry played for Barcelona after Arsenal. My first team in Spain is Oviedo, but my second is Barcelona because of the style of football. I used to try and practice like Bergkamp and Henry when I was younger.

“There are not many people who can do what they did.”
