The Guardian‘s Barney Ronay has penned a piece tonight about how Michu looks like the striker Fernando Torres might have become. The way the Swansea striker clinically finished his chance on Wednesday night is reminiscent of a Torres in his prime, but to be fair to Torres, the former Liverpool striker is not the same type of player he once was — and not in a bad way.
Torres’s game has changed over the past few years. He’s significantly improved his crosses, and he’s often more the provider rather than the goalscorer. Maybe Michu is the new old Torres?
