Michu explains Swansea goal celebration

Swansea City's newest star Michu has explained the celebration he produces whenever he scores for his new club.

The Spaniard holds one hand up to his ear whilst running down the pitch as if to signal that he cannot hear anything.

Michu, who has scored four goals in three matches since joining from Rayo Vallecano in the summer, says that the celebration comes from his playing days in Spain after he scored a goal for his old club.

"It is from my days in Spain," Michu told Swansea's official website. "When I was at Celta Vigo in the second division, we played Gorka Pintado's old club Granada and I missed a penalty.

"Granada went up that season to the top league, and then I moved to Rayo Vallecano who were also in the top division.

"In the warm up to that game I could hear the Granada fans shouting 'Hey Michu, please take a penalty today'.

"But the game finished 1-0 in our favour and I scored the only goal. So when I scored, I just put my hand to my ear and listened to the Granada support, but they were quiet. It was just a bit of harmless fun with the Granada fans.

"Of course, now I am at Swansea, but I still like to do the celebration because it reminds me of my journey here."
