Spanish stars join Real Oviedo fight

Spanish stars Santi Cazorla, Juan Mata and Michu have put their hands into their pockets in an effort to save their former club from financial crisis.

Real Oviedo, who currently play in the Spanish third division, are in danger of going out of business if they do not raise €2 million in the next fortnight.

The Premier League midfielders have all purchased shares to help raise the money needed to rescue the club at which they started their careers.

"Myself, Mata and Cazorla have all bought shares, but it would be wrong of me to say how much. We just wanted to try and help save the club we all played for," Michu said.

"The economy in Spain is very bad and the club needs around €2 million to survive. A lot of people have bought shares and hopefully it will be enough by the closing date of November 17. It's my local club, a club I love, so I hope it will be enough."

Michu has enjoyed a stunning start to Premier League life with Swansea and hopes his former club can enjoy a similar revival to the Swans, who also embarked on a share sale when they were in danger of going under.

"Swansea fans should know how much it means to me and the Oviedo supporters," he said.

"I remember reading up on the history of Swansea when I first arrived here. I remember reading how the Swansea supporters bought shares in this club when it was in trouble 10 years ago - and again many years before that.

"And look at the club now; in the Premier League and winning at places like Anfield. Hopefully this SOS can have a similar reaction."
