Michu's magic Malmo moment
1st August 2013
Michu saluted Wilfried Bony's stunning Swansea City debut - and believes he will get even better playing behind the £12million striker.
Michu, who scored 22 goals in all competitions last season, opened the scoring in the 4-0 win over Swedish side Malmo in the Europa League third qualifying round first leg at the Liberty Stadium.
Bony, the club record signing from Vitesse Arnhem this summer, then opened his Swans account after the break as he scored twice before setting up substitute Alejandro Pozuelo for the fourth goal.
And Michu feels the Ivory Coast international can bring the best out of him this season.
"It's a really good debut for Bony," said Michu. "He will get even better. He is so strong and I am happy playing with him.
"I can play behind him, which is the best position for me. I will be better playing behind him because he is stronger and he will give us more power up front.
"I am very happy with my goal - it's a good start for me. But I am also very happy too for Bony and Pozuelo."
The Swans head to Malmo next Thursday with a healthy advantage thanks to a performance Michael Laudrup described as perfect.
And Michu hailed his team-mates display, but insists they will be looking to put in a similar performance out in Sweden next week.
"We did very well. To score four and not concede is a perfect result ahead of the second leg," he added.
"We put in a very good performance. We have trained for one month and the team is stronger this season.
"We want to finish the job out in Sweden. We are going to try and win the game because it starts 0-0."
