Michu has hailed the impact of Michael Laudrup at Swansea City.

The Spanish midfielder insists Swansea deserve comparisons with Barcelona.

He told : "The workouts are similar to what I was doing in Spain because Laudrup more or less the same as he when he was in charge at Getafe or Mallorca.

"It is true that the rivals are more physical. But to play in Swansea you do not need much physical because we want to play it like Barca."
