Swansea boss Laudrup delighted with exciting Bony debut

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup was delighted with Wilfried Bony's showing in their friendly win over Reading.

Laudrup was pleased to witness club record buy Bony last the full 90 minutes.

Laudrup said: “Match fitness is important for Wilfried as well as knowing the other players. The other new players have had some more games to get used to the squad.

“But with the work permit delay he has been away.

“He played 45 minutes in Holland against Den Haag, but we haven’t seen much of him since then.

“He’s here and I thought it was good for him to play 90 minutes.”
