Spain star backs Swansea City's Michu
BARCELONA star Andres Iniesta reckons Michu should be congratulated - not criticised - after making his debut for Spain.
Michu has faced some flak in the Spanish media having won his first Spanish cap in the win over Belarus last Friday night.
But World Cup winner Iniesta has defended the Swansea City forward, who hopes to play some part when Spain face Georgia tonight.
"The criticism of Michu is totally misguided and without foundation," Iniesta said.
"He should be congratulated for debuting with the national team because it is not easy to reach this team and his work has been very good, so that is why he is here."
