Michu: Enjoying how open the Premier League is compared to Spain
Swansea's Michu says there is more chance of lesser teams winning in the Premier League, unlike in Spain.
The 26-year-old attacking midfielder has enjoyed a fruitful opening four games in his first taste of English league life, netting four.
After scoring more goals in La Liga last season than any other midfielder when he featured for Rayo Vallecano, Michu is making his £2million switch to the Welsh outfit look like the steal of the summer.
Despite struggling with the language barrier the midfielder - full name Miguel Perez Cuesta - is relishing life in a different country and enjoys how wide open the league is.
"In England, more or less all the teams have good money. In Spain, it's only Barcelona and Madrid," the Spaniard told The Guardian.
"We can't compete against Barcelona, it's impossible. If you play 100 games, you can win only one.
"Here, you can win against Manchester United or Manchester City. Okay, it's very difficult. But you can win."
