Michu Misses Out On Spain Call-Up

Swansea City's top scorer Michu has missed out on a call-up to the Spain squad to face Uruguay in an international friendly.

Spain manager Vicente del Bosque watched him in action at Everton last month as he considered him along with defender Chico for his squad to face Uruguay next Wednesday.

Michu was unfortunate to miss out given his goalscoring form this season, but del Bosque said it was down to the competition for places in his position.

'With this squad, we are left with the bad taste of being able to call up someone who is deserving of a place in the squad. But those who are coming deserve a call-up,'

'With this being a friendly, it is true that we could have experimented more. But we have to take preparation seriously. We have a very serious opponent who are Copa America holders and were fourth in the World Cup.

"I recognise [Michu's] worth and his goals in the Premier League, but I could not find space this time. It`s the same with [Celta Vigo's] Iago Aspas.

"I am honest and do not hide anything. In the position that he plays, Michu is competing with five or six from our team.

'We have great quality of players in midfield. You only need look at the Under-21 list. Isco and Thiago are great players, but they are not the only ones.'


Also missing out was Chelsea striker Fernando Torres, while Swansea City duo Jonathan de Guzman and Michel Vorm were called up to the Holland squad.
