Mowbray wary of Michu

Published Add your comment

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray has warned his players to beware the Barclays Premier League's biggest bargain as they attempt to reach the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup.

The npower Championship side travel to Swansea in the last eight hoping for a repeat of their victory over top-flight opposition in the last round at neighbours Sunderland. However, if they are to achieve that, they may have to find a way to stop striker Michu, who has made a blistering start to his career in England.

The 26-year-old Spaniard, a £2million summer signing from Rayo Vallecano, currently leads the top division for goals scored having plundered 12 already, and that makes him a major threat to Mowbray's men. The former central defender said: "He plays in that 'ghost' position behind a striker, and who's marking him?"
