LEIGHTON JAMES COLUMN: Michu's Swansea City return means a mouthwatering prospect

Michu's return to fitness will be a huge boost for Swansea City in the Premier League run-in, says Leighton.

MICHU'S comeback could be the perfect tonic for Swansea City as they look for a lift in the final ten games of the season.

The forward looks to be nearing a return from a troublesome ankle injury that has kept him out for four months.

Normally my attitude is that if you're fit enough to be on the bench, you're fit enough to start.

But Michu seems to have had a number of setbacks during his rehabilitation, so I would name him among the substitutes against West Brom.

The former Rayo Vallecano man needs to be eased back in so he can make maximum impact between now and May.

Compared to last season, when Michu burst on to the Premier League scene, he has had a quiet campaign which has been hampered by injury.

And some have questioned whether his goalscoring achievements last season may have been a fluke.

As far as I'm concerned, Michu is clearly the real deal.

He scored plenty of times for a struggling side in Spain before moving to Swansea and has been called up by his country. That doesn't happen if you're a flash in the pan. Michu possesses top quality and the prospect of finally playing him alongside a fully-firing Wilfried Bony is a mouthwatering one.
