Swansea cup hero Michu delighted with transition to English football

Swansea City star Michu has been absolutely thrilled by his transition to football in England.

The Spaniard arrived at the Liberty Stadium from Rayo Vallecano in the summer and has now scored 19 goals including the second as the Swans ran away 5-0 winners over Bradford City in the Capital One Cup final.

Michu says he is delighted to have taken out some silverware in his debut season in England and he felt the Swans were very deserved winners at Wembley.

"A good position in the league and now the first title in my career and with this performance...it's been a good day," he said.

"It was a massive game, 90,000 people at Wembley, but with this performance from this team - I think we deserved it."

He added: "It was maybe the most important (goal) of the season. It gave us this possibility to take this title.

"It's been a great season for me and the team, my first season in English football.

"It's great for the club, the first trophy in its history and now we are going to play in the Europa League.

"I know it's a small team but it's like a family. We can lose, we can win but we try to play well all the time."
