There’s a new name on the lips of the Jack Army after Michu capped off an unforgettable day for Swansea City with a dream double on his debut.
Michu may not speak perfect English just yet, but actions speak louder than words as he put the Swans ahead after just eight minutes at QPR.
He doubled the lead with a simply sublime strike in the 53rd minute as the Swans ran riot at Loftus Road.
His block and movement helped set up the third for Nathan Dyer before the latter added another and then Michu teed up Scott Sinclair to complete the rout.
Signed for around £2million from La Liga outfit Rayo Vallecano, Michu already looks a real bargain.
And the 26-year-old couldn’t have asked for much more from his first competitive outing for the Swans.
“It was an unforgettable day – it couldn’t be any better,” said Michu via his translator and team-mate Angel Rangel. “It’s my first competitive game for Swansea City and I managed to score two goals.
“I didn’t expect to get off to such a perfect start. I hit the crossbar as well, so I could have had a hat-trick.
“But the most important thing is that we won and we got three points which can allow us to grow and grow into the league.”
The Jack Army saluted a faultless display as the Swans got Michael Laudrup’s regime off to a five-star start.
And Michu pointed out the role the supporters played at Loftus Road as around 2,500 cheered them on to victory.
“I was very impressed with the fans – they were brilliant to me and the team,” he added. They sing and sing all through the game.”
He added: “I don’t have a target for this season. I have come here to score goals and I’ve made a great start.
“But I will keep working very hard and, most importantly, I put my bit into the team and help as much as I can.”
