Friday, 8 September 2017 : Wilfried Bony says his two sons convinced him to return to Swansea City because the club is “like a family”.
The Ivory Coast striker returned to the Liberty Stadium on deadline day for £12m after leaving for Manchester City in 2015 in a £28m deal.
Bony scored 34 goals for Swansea, but has scored only 12 since.
“I think my boys decided,” Bony said. “They heard about the interest and said ‘Daddy you have to go back to Swansea’. So my boys chose Swansea.”
The 28-year-old added: “There were other options – Lille, Fenerbahce and others – but most important was what my family said.”
Bony was one of the most sought after strikers in the Premier League prior to his move to Etihad Stadium, but he does not look back on his time in Manchester with any regret even though he only started 15 league games for City before an unsuccessful loan move to Stoke last season.
“The most important thing is to stay fit,” Bony added.
“I wasn’t fit enough there, so when you’re not fit enough and you get a chance you push yourself maybe too much and your body isn’t going to react well to that.
“Sometimes you can then mentally or physically get problems.
“I had good moments there. But, personally, I wish to do better than this – but things weren’t going my way so I’m now trying to move forward.
“I don’t regret the move. It was good for me to have another experience.”
