In 2012, Michu signed for Swansea football club as a relatively unknown striker and the rest as they say is history.

On his premier league debut against Queen Park Rangers, the Spanish striker scored a brace and also provided an assist in a 5-0 thrashing.

He maintained his goalscoring form for the rest of the season, bagging an impressive 22 goals in all competitions. Swansea finished 9th on the table and went on to lift the league cup under Michael Laudrup, which happened to be their first Major trophy win.pic credit; Getty images

Michu played a huge part in the team's success and this resulted to him being called up by the Spanish National team. He had the prerogative of playing alongside the likes of Xavi, Iniesta and Ramos.

But like many before him, the Spanish failed to replicate his performance in the following season, managing just two goals in the 2013/2014 season.

He was subsequently loaned to Napoli and he later returned to his boyhood club Real Oviedo in the Segunda division.

But again, he never recaptured his 2012/2013 form and in 2017, he announced his retirement from football due to injuries and some setbacks.Michu's announcement on twitter
