Lille coach Bielsa still angry over snub from Swansea striker Bony

Lille coach Marcelo Bielsa admits he's still upset being turned down by Wilfried Bony.

The Swansea City signing held talks with Bielsa when choosing to leave Manchester City over the summer.

The Argentine admits he spoke to Bony, reluctantly, as he believed the striker should've been initiating the negotiations.

He explained: "I do not like to do this because for me the desire to belong to a club must be greater than a club's desire to have a player.

"But I did it within the time I was given and Bony chose to go to another club."
