Michu: Picked up hamstring injury against Manchester City

Michu: Picked up hamstring injury against Manchester City

The Spanish forward injured his hamstring in the goalless draw at home to Manchester City on Saturday and is unlikely to be involved again this campaign.

"It's not very serious but it is a hamstring so it will probably be goodbye for this season," Laudrup told Sky Sports.

"There are only two weeks left but I think his season is over."

Michu has scored 39 per cent of Swansea's Premier League goals this season - a greater share than any other player in the top flight.

Laudrup has admitted that adding to Swansea's attacking options has already been identified as a priority in the summer.

"I don't want to name any names right now but I don't think you have to be a rocket scientist to know what we could need," added the Swans boss.

"We have been working on this for the last couple of months but we still have to finish this season first."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
