Bony urges the Swans’ fans to stand behind the team


Swansea City lost 2-0 to Burnley and the 28-year-old striker has apologized to the fans at the Liberty Stadium.

Cote d’Ivoire and Swansea City forward Wilfried Bony has offered an apology to the club’s fans following a disappointing result against Burnley on Saturday. Paul Clement’s men were struck by goals from Jack Cork and Ashley Barnes, losing their eighth game in just 12 features in the Premier League.

And Bony, who returned from a hamstring injury, urged the fans to stick with the team in a very ‘difficult moment’.

“Our position is not good at the moment so we need to stay together, fight and learn from our mistakes from Saturday,” Bony told club website.

“All I can say is that we are very sorry for what happened on Saturday. I promise we will do our best next week.

“We know at the moment the fans are unhappy. We are too.”

However, the striker urged the fans to stand behind the team, because the Swans’ squad needs all the support they can get.

“We need their support to lift us for the next game. It won’t be easy against Bournemouth, but their support is going to be crucial for us in a difficult moment,” he added.

“We need everybody right now. We are not in a good moment but If everyone stays together then the team can get to where it wants to be.”
