. . . Spaniard on the scoresheet in victory over Ploiesti


Michu revealed his delight at getting back to winning ways following the 5-1 victory over Petrolul Ploiesti.
The Spaniard netted his second goal of the season either side of a Wayne Routledge brace as the Swans scored three first-half goals without reply.
Wilfried Bony added a fourth for the home side before substitute Alejandro Pozuelo wrapped up the win with a coolly taken goal.
And despite a late overhead kick from Gheorghe Grozav, Laudrup’s side are now within touching distance of the group stages.


“The best way to come back was to win,” said Michu. “Overall, it was a good result for us and we now have a really good opportunity to reach the group stages.
“I know we scored five goals and could have had more, but I wasn’t happy with the last ten minutes. They scored a really good goal, but at 5-0 up we should have just kept the ball.”
“Pablo did really well during the game, but the whole team did well. I’m also very happy for Alex (Pozuelo) - he deserved his goal and it was good for us to score five.”
The Swans now turn their attention to Sunday’s Premier League clash against Spurs at White Hart Lane.
The home side have spent big in the transfer market this summer, but could well be without Gareth Bale.
“It’s a tough game,” said Michu. “But we need to go there and fight to get some points.”
