Bony: I am doing all I can to get back to my best
Wilfried Bony revealed he is doing all he can to get back to his best after scoring his first Swansea City goal at the Liberty Stadium for three years.
Bony drilled home nine minutes from time to give the Swans a crucial victory against West Brom.
It was his second goal in as many matches, but his first for the Swans in SA1 since he netted against Tottenham back in December 2014.
And Bony, who put in a huge shift to lead his team to victory, admitted there was a special feeling when the ball went into the net.
“It was emotional to get the goal and score once again at the Liberty Stadium,” he said.
“I am working very hard to be back to my best. Only games will help me do that, and I am glad to have played some games now.
“I am working hard off the pitch and I hope I can deliver what I used to deliver at the Liberty Stadium.”
Bony, who turns 29 tomorrow, has now scored twice in a week having gone more than 13 months without a Premier League goal before that.
The Ivorian looks sharper than he has done at any stage since rejoining the Swans in August, and was a key figure in the West Brom victory.
“It was a very important game for us – we needed to win,” Bony added.
“We have been playing better in the last few games but have not got the results. Today it was important that we got something in front of our fans.
“Three points was all we wanted for them. We didn’t give up. We were always pushing for the result and we knew the goal was coming.”
The Swans face a major test against Bony’s former club Manchester City on Wednesday.
But they head into that game in better spirits after ending their seven-game winless streak.
“This win will help our confidence grow,” Bony said.
“We have a very important but difficult game against Manchester City which we must be ready for.
“As a team we knew how important the West Brom game was. Now we must keep fighting and do everything we can to get out of the position we are in.”
