Ben lauds "exceptional" Bony
22nd April 2014
Ben Davies has hailed Wilfried Bony's "exceptional" performances during his debut season at Swansea City.
The club-record signing took his tally to 22 in all competitions last weekend as his brace earned a last-gasp victory at Newcastle United, which eased the Swans' relegation fears.
Bony headed the Swans level after he met Davies' corner in first-half stoppage time, and then the striker lived up to his "Daddy Cool" nickname by clinching victory in the final few seconds from the penalty spot.
And Davies was full of praise for the 25-year-old, who made the £12million move from Vitesse Arnhem last summer.
"He's an incredible player for us and he's been exceptional," Davies said of his team-mate.
"Someone who gets that many goals in a team that's been in the bottom half of the Premier League is incredible.
"He's great to have around the camp. He's someone everybody here loves playing with and we're all just really happy with him banging the goals in.
"If you're going to be scoring goals at the standard that he (Bony) is then there is going to be interest. I can't really say that we would want it any other way.
"We really want to keep him here and hopefully he can repeat what he's done for us this year next season."
