Miguel Pérez Cuesta, better known as Michu hung up his boots three years ago, leaving behind a career that after a great season at Rayo led him to be an idol of Swansea and to debut with the Spanish National Team. The Asturian landed in the Premier League in 2012 after scoring 17 goals in Vallecas, having a direct impact on the Welsh team scoring 22 goals in 42 games in its first season. The injuries they weighed him down and he couldn't shine as he had used to, ending his career in the team of his heart, Real Oviedo.
One of the things Michu is remembered for the most is for his striking celebration, putting his hand to his ear, which we especially saw on his arrival in the Premier League. In an interview with the program What T´hi Jugues de Ser Catalunya, the now Sporting Director of Burgos, explained that this way of celebrating goals was dedicated to his detractors as a way of saying, “now I can't hear you speak.” “The celebration? It is dedicated to haters, they always come out when things go regular … but when you score a goal, you don't hear anyone crack from you”.
For a year now, Michu's name has always been related to that of one of the great stars of the European scene, Erling haaland, and the Norwegian was a great fan of the Oviedo in his adolescence. The surprising story was revealed by seeing that the Borussia Dortmund striker had tagged the former Swansea player about himself in his oldest Instagram photos. In fact, Haaland himself paid a small tribute to his idol celebrating a goal with the Norwegian national team with his hand to his ear.
“It's a pride for me. I would love to get to know you more. The most important thing you have is hunger, is demonstrated by the statements he made about Mbappé. He has a terrible room for improvement and is going to mark an era together with Mbappé, Although I would stay with him!”. In addition, the Asturian wanted to comment on the transfer rumors that are related to the Norwegian with the greats of Europe, especially Real Madrid, making his opinion clear with a forceful, “for that price it's a bargain, let's see who signs it”.
