Swansea boss Laudrup happy for Bony to bed down gradually

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is happy with Wilfried Bony's gradual adjustment to the Premier League.

The Dane argues the switch from ­Holland to England is a massive one because of the gulf in class between the respective leagues.

He said: "Wilfried's come in from the Dutch league which is not as ­competitive as the Premier League.

"I don't want to push him too much.

"He's adapting the way I expected him to - even if people say money has to be the equal of performances and goals scored.

"But I know it is not easy for ­everybody to adapt quickly, ­particularly when you play up front.

"With respect to the Dutch ­defenders, it is a big difference over here - especially with the league start we had against Manchester ­United, Tottenham, ­Liverpool and ­Arsenal."
