Capital One celebrates Swansea City’s European run with special Spanish phrase guide

The special audio guide, voiced by a host of Swansea’s adopted Spanish stars including Miguel Michu, Chico Flores and Jose Canas, features the stars offering a number of helpful phrases for fans making the trip, as well as translations for favourite chants to help make a real presence in Valencia’s iconic Mestalla stadium.
