With an eclectic start of 18 goals in his first season of English football, Michu led his Swansea team to League victory. He became a synonym for one season wonders in football since he was a star player right in his first season itself. Goals and offers poured in from Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United. However, post the sacking of the team’s manager, Laudrup, Michu’s performance mysteriously started deteriorating. He scored only 2 goals in the second season, along with complaints of a sour attitude, frequent injuries, and financial troubles and was quietly sent back to his boyhood club, Real Oviedo.
