Michu Explains His Goal Celebration

Michu Explains His Goal Celebration

Swansea City midfielder Michu has explained the reason behind his goal celebration - as shown in the picture above.

After just three Premier League games, the 26 year-old has shown his celebration on 4 occassions - scoring a brace in the opening game at QPR, as well as scoring in the West Ham and Sunderland home matches respectively.

Michu explained his celebration to the Evening Post:

"It is from my days in Spain,"

"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."


The £2m signing also briefly talked about his former club Rayo Vallecano:

"Rayo did a lot for my career and I won`t forget that,"

"It`s a family club, just like Swansea. Everyone is very friendly and close.

"I always look out for Rayo`s results. They have started very well in La Liga - they are on seven points, just like us, and I hope we can both enjoy very successful seasons."
