In the fanzine this term we have been counting down the top 20 goals at the Liberty to mark a decade at our current home. Over the next few weeks we will countdown one per day accompanied with a video of the goal where possible. Today we’re looking at number 16 which was scored by our club record signing.
16. Wilfried Bony vs. Manchester City, January 2014
Club record signing Bony had a tough start to life at the Liberty with Michael Laudrup lacking confidence in his new number ten. However things turned for the Ivorian in an afternoon against future employers Manchester City and it’s the second of his strikes that day that makes our list here. The Swans were 1-3 down in injury time of this New Year’s Day clash when Bony blasted a strike from outside the box into Joe Hart’s bottom left hand corner which he got nowhere near. It was sadly too late to fashion an equaliser but big Wilf must have impressed opposition boss Manuel Pellegrini who signed him for £27 million a year later.
If you skip to 3 minutes 45 in the video above you will see the strike for yourselves
