Wilfried Bony hails support of Swans fans

12th May 2014

Wilfried Bony thanked the loyal Jack Army for their magnificent support this season after the Swans finished 2013-14 on a high with a 3-1 victory over Sunderland.

Garry Monk's side secured a 12th position finish in the Premier League on the final day of the campaign, courtesy of goals from Nathan Dyer, Marvin Emnes and Bony at the Stadium of Light.

Three wins from the club's final four games took the Swans onto 42 points for the season.

And with the curtains now drawn on another Premier League campaign, Bony was keen to thank Swans supporters before he meets up with the Ivory Coast national squad ahead of this summer's World Cup.

"The supporters have given us a lot of support and motivation this season, so I just want to say thank you to them," said Bony.

"They have sang my name all season, which has really helped me. When the crowd sings your name, you just want to make them happy.

"It was a good performance today. We took our chances to score to take control of the game. 

"We knew we might suffer at some points, but we just had to focus and maintain concentration and punish them when we had the opportunities.

"Our target was to pass the 40-point mark, so we are all happy to finish the season on a high.

"Overall, it has been a great season. We are pleased to stay in the Premier League and, for me personally, I am happy with how I have done.

"We have played a lot of games with quite a small squad, but we have done well."

"I have five days free now before I have to run again, but I am looking forward to the World Cup."
