Michael Owen reveals why Newcastle will struggle against Swansea

Posted September 11, 2017

Wilfried Bony has admitted he "wasn't fit enough" when he moved to Manchester City, but says he had no regrets over the transfer.

"Paul Clement's ties to Bayern and his friendship with Carlo Ancelotti has obviously got a lot to do with him coming to Swansea - but you've got to capitalise on stuff like that". It may be recalled here that Bony returned to Swansea for £12m from Manchester City.

Those two additions should strengthen this Swansea side, and they could make their debuts against a Newcastle side who endured a hard transfer window.

In an interview with BBC, Bony said,"I think my boys decided".

Giggs added that Premier League style of play would suit the young player, who was part of the Euro 2016 winning squad, and thought the loan deal was a good move for Sanches, he said: "He can tackle, he can get forward and he's going to a club that play football the right way so I think he'll be a success". "There were other options, but I didn't want to go somewhere where my family didn't want to go".

"I was delighted to get it over the over the line, but there are no guarantees that Renato has to play and Bayern are of the same view".

He said, "I really fear for Newcastle this season and the signs from manager Rafa Benitez aren't good, I expect the Magpies to struggle at the Liberty Stadium, with Paul Clement doing brilliant work in the closing stages of the summer transfer window". In some situations it looked like it would be hard to do it, then it got nearer and then it got further again but I was delighted to get it over the line.

There were offers from France and Turkey to resurrect his career, but Bony said his mind was made by his two sons who are both Swansea supporters. I just focus on the pitch.

"Not only me but the team as well - that is the most important thing".
