Michu vows to improve after Bony signing

Swansea City forward Michu has promised to play even better than last season thanks to the arrival of fellow striker Wilfried Bony.

Michu, who was signed for just £2 million from La Liga outfit Rayo Vallecano, was the surprise package of the Premier League last season, scoring an astonishing 22 goals as he helped the Welsh club to a ninth-placed finish, as well as a first ever League Cup trophy - this gives the Swans and Michu an opportunity for Europa League football this season.

The 27-year-old has targeted improvement ahead of the 2013/14 campaign,

and admitted that his  favoured position is playing 'in the hole' despite wearing the number nine last season and having to play as an out-and-out striker due to Swansea's lack of cover in that position.

Michu told reporters: "I prefer to play behind the striker so I hope you will see a better Michu.

"I scored more goals when I played behind a striker last season. I like that position because I can move around and the centre-backs are looking for the striker and not me. I can arrive late from the second line and score goals."

Bony, who was signed from Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem for a club-record fee of £12m, looks set to play a key role in attack with the Spaniard this season.

The Ivorian striker made his starting debut alongside Michu in a 3-0 friendly win over Reading recently, in which Michu scored and Bony assisted twice.
