Learn Spanish with the Swans

19th September 2013

Swansea City supporters gearing up to begin their Europa League adventure in Valencia are getting a helping hand from their very own Spanish heroes, with the first ever downloadable Footballer's Guide to Spanish phrases.
The Swans qualified for Europe this year after triumphing in the Capital One Cup last season at Wembley and League Cup sponsor and credit card provider Capital One has stepped in to ensure travelling supporters are properly prepared for their first trip to Spain with the club, teaming up with the club's leading stars to create a tongue-in-cheek language guide for fans.
The special audio guide, voiced by a host of the Swans' Spanish stars including Michu, Chico Flores and Jose Canas, features the stars offering a number of helpful phrases for fans making the trip, as well as translations for favourite chants to help make a real presence in Valencia's iconic Mestalla Stadium.

Highlights include:

There's only one Wayne Routledge!   
Sólo hay un Wayne Routledge!

Referee, that was a pen!   
Árbitro, ¡eso fue penalti!

Do you speak Welsh?   
Hablan ustedes Galés?

A game of two halves   
Un partido de dos mitades

Do you serve pies?   
Se sirven pasteles?

Angel Rangel said: "We can't wait to see our brilliant supporters out in Spain on Thursday. I hope Capital One's Spanish guide helps a few of our fans, and I might be sharing it with some of the lads in the changing room!"
