Michu backs Swans for strong finish
5th March 2013
Michu hailed Saturday's win over Newcastle - but has called on his team-mates to 'fight for everything' to ensure a successful end to the season.
The Swans secured a 1-0 win over Alan Pardew's side thanks to Luke Moore's late goal - a result that moved them onto 40 points in the Premier League.
It will mean another season of top-flight football at the Liberty Stadium in what has already been a historic year for the club.
Michael Laudrup's side already have the Capital One Cup trophy in the cabinet this season and top scorer Michu is backing the Swans to finish the campaign in style.
"We have ten games left and we need to fight in every one," he said. "It has been a great season for us in terms of winning a trophy and sitting in a good position in the league.
"Saturday was an important game for us. We were really tired and Newcastle are a strong team - they made it hard for us.
"After Wembley we had some celebrations and we knew it was going to be tough. But we got the late goal, it was a great win for us and I think we are safe now we've reached 40 points."
The Swans head to the Hawthorns this coming Saturday to take on West Bromwich Albion, who themselves have enjoyed a fine season.
Following that, Laudrup's men have back-to-back home games against Arsenal and in-form Spurs.
Michu opened the scoring against the Baggies in the reverse fixture back in November, and the Spaniard knows the importance of this weekend's fixture if they are to finish the campaign in eighth place.
"West Brom is a very important game," he said. "They have the same points as us and we'll be fighting really hard to get something positive.
"The teams ahead of us are very strong and big clubs. But we can't relax and it will be an excellent season if we can go on and finish eighth.
"As always, we will be looking to win every game we play."
