New Swansea Striker Bony Chooses Number 2 Instead Of 9 - Here Is Why

Renato Sanches' Swansea vs Premier League number controversy is followed by yet another strange number decision as Wilfried Bony has decided to pick up shirt number 2, a number usually used by defenders.

"I am still at school. I always want to improve, and I have a lot to show,” said the Ivorian. "I have a very good feeling, especially for myself, the fans and my family. I need to be on the pitch playing, so when I heard Swansea wanted me back I was very excited."

Wilfried Bony is back at Swansea City after completing his move from Manchester City on transfer deadline day. The 28-year-old, who has scored 34 goals in 70 appearances at the Swans, has penned a two-year deal with the option of a further 12 months after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.

Bony Chooses Number 2 Because 'It's The Second Time He Is At The Club'

Bony has opted to wear squad number two - vacated following Jordi Amat’s loan move to Real Betis. And he explained why he wanted to take a number usually worn by a defender instead of number 9, which was free.

"It’s a special number for me,” he added. "It’s the second time I am at the club, hence I wanted to wear number two, and I want to achieve more for the team.”

Wilfried Bony wore Swansea's Number 10 during his first time at the club.
