Swansea boss Laudrup happy with Michu in striker role

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says Michu could play up front long-term after victory over Wigan Athletic.

The Spaniard rewarded his manager's faith with a goal, and while Laudrup does not expect to repeat the experiment too often, he admitted Michu's impressive haul of six league goals in eight games makes it an attractive proposition.

"Michu can drop and still be that third midfielder when we don't have the ball," he said. "The thing is he has scored so many goals, he wants to be up there, that is the problem.

"He wants to be up there in the opponent's goal. It is hard for me to say don't. He has scored six plus one in the cup in nine games. That's a good average."
