Lee Trundle has written off the rumours suggesting that Michu has played his last game for Swansea City.
There's been plenty of speculation going around in recent weeks that Swansea's star player Michu doesn't want to play for the club anymore and is frustrated following the sacking of former manager Michael Laudrup.
It appears that the speculation has simply started and carried on because of Michu's ongoing ankle injury problems - which is the actual and only reason why the Spaniard is not in action for the club.
In his Evening Post column, former striker Lee Trundle was keen to write off the rumours:
'I HAVE heard the rumours about Michu not wanting to play for Swansea City because Michael Laudrup`s gone.
They are wrong.
People seem to have forgotten pretty quickly that Michu missed a load of games when Michael was still here.
He has been out for a while with this ankle injury and, frustratingly, when he has tried to come back, he has still been feeling some pain.'
Trundle was also keen to point out that Michu is desperate to return to action soon:
'But I know for a fact that Michu will be desperate to start playing again.
I have been there myself.
When I was at Bristol City, I was having a terrible time with the manager, Gary Johnson.
But I still wanted to be out there on a Saturday afternoon playing football.
Whether it is because you`re injured or you`re not being picked, the games are what you miss as a footballer.
And that is how Michu is feeling right now.
I spoke to him down at the training ground this week.
It was Wednesday, and most of the lads were off after being given some time to rest up because of all the games we`ve had lately.
Michu was in working on his fitness, and I think it`s helped him having this week with no fixture.
He has been out running on the ankle — he said he had worked it hard and felt okay.
Now it`s a case of monitoring him and seeing if he will be ready for the West Brom game next weekend.'
There are other rumours suggesting that Michu has a serious problem with his ankle, and this is far more truthful, as the attacking midfielder has struggled to recover from the problem that he first suffered back in November 2013. He has received injections in recent weeks but he is still feeling pain which is halting his recovery process.
