Swansea boss Laudrup admits Bony needs extra work

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup admits they're doing extra work with Wilfried Bony.

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup admits they're doing extra work with Wilfried Bony.

The Ivory Coast striker, who cost £12m from Vitesse Arnhem, has got only two league goals – one of them a penalty – and was on the bench in Sunday’s south Wales derby for the second game in a row.

Laudrup said: “We need to work with Wilfried. He did not have a proper pre-season with all the things happening before he moved and even after we signed him he had to stay away for nine days to get a work permit.

“That is why we are trying to get him up to top condition, so we can see the best from him. He is a special case for a lot of reasons.”
