Michu: Hoping to win Capital One Cup and earn his first cap for Spain

Michu, who signed a new deal at Swansea earlier this week, helped the club to next month's final with victory over Chelsea and he is in line for his debut for Spain against Uruguay.

The 26-year-old is determined to secure the first medal of his career by helping Swansea overcome Bradford in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley.

"I hope it will be a great February for me. Playing for Spain and winning at Wembley would be great," said Michu.

"I believe we can win at Wembley and play in Europe. We have done well in the league and now we're in a cup final.

"It's the most important game of my career and if we win it will be the first title of my career.

"I've also never been to Wembley but I hope to play well in the final, with Swansea bringing home the trophy.

"It will be a difficult game against Bradford but we can win. I am also happy to hear that Spain boss Vicente Del Bosque says I'm playing the best football in my career."

Michu, who has scored 16 goals already this season, has played down talk that he is already a Swansea legend following his exploits this term.

"I have been confident in my ability this season. But I'm not a legend at Swansea," added Michu.

"I try to work hard and score goals for the team."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
