Today's media round-up

11th October 2013

In today's press, Swans keeper Michel Vorm has backed Ivory Coast striker and club record signing Wilfried Bony to hit the goal trail this season.
Bony already has six goals to his name since his £12million move from Vitesse Arnhem, and Dutch international Vorm believes there's plenty more to come.

Bony 'a monster' who can rival 'ballerina' van Persie, says Vorm

Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm says Ivorian striker Wilfried Bony is 'a monster in the dressing room' and can compete with Manchester United's Robin van Persie to be the

The Dutch goalkeeper says Bony is a fearsome physical specimen, and believes it is only a matter of time until the 24-year-old starts banging in the goals on a regular basis for the Swans.

Bony was the top scorer in the Dutch Eredivisie last season with 31 goals for Vitesse and has scored six times so far for his new side after making a £12m move in the summer.

And Vorm believes he can build on that tally even further once he gets regular playing time in south Wales.

Vorm told De Telegraaf: "In the dressing room you see just what a monster he is.

"Physically he is bizarrely strong. He can really scare you senseless.

"He is still not playing as much as he would like, but he has already scored six times.

"In training you see he is a real goal machine but he goes about his business very quietly.

"And he shoots so hard, it's not normal."

And while Vorm appreciates there are differences between Bony and Dutch international teammate Robin van Persie, he thinks the Ivorian can match van Persie's scoring exploits.

He said: "When I think about Robin I always think about ballet. Everything he does is so graceful.

"Bony is a very different player, a powerful African, but also has good technique.

"If he plays every week he will score 15 or 20 goals. I'm 100 per cent sure of it."
