Bony return should kickstart Swansea’s season

Bony return should kickstart Swansea’s season

According to Sky Sports, Swansea have been dealt the seismic boost that star striker Wilfried Bony has returned from injury. 

This news should be music to manager Graham Potter’s ears, as his club have endured a torrid injury crisis so far this season.

With a number of players returning in recent weeks, Ivory Coast international Bony is the final piece in the jigsaw that is Swansea’s promotion bid.

Although the former Man City striker may be a few weeks from playing, given the nature of his injury, this boost can still be enough the spur The Swans on to climb up the table.

The 22-year-old Oli McBurnie has operated as a very serviceable deputy to Bony (valued at £6.3m on Transfermarkt.co.uk) so far this season, and, while there may well be a place in the team for both of them, he has proven in the past that he is lethal and should find the Championship very fruitful for him.

The big forward was one of the biggest players that The Swans were able to keep hold of over the summer, and Potter must have been licking his lips at the thought of him returning.

Swansea currently sit in 11th place in the Championship, showing varied form throughout the season. They have dipped into the top six, but fallen out very quickly. If they can take those qualities and performances that they have shown and combine them with the return of Bony, fans can surely hope for a very successful season.
