Wilfried Bony’s numbers make for fascinating reading. Standing less than 6ft tall, Bony tips the scales at 91kg, which would make him a heavyweight in the world of boxing. He is the multilingual striker who played as a centre-half until the age of 14. Most significantly for Manchester City, who have parted with £28m to sign the Ivorian, Bony is ranked as the fifth highest goalscorer across the top six leagues in Europe since the start of the 2012-13 season.
Bony has said that he is happy to have joined 'a team of champions', after signing a four-and-a-half-year contract with Manchester City. The Swansea striker, who was bought for a reported £28m, has become one of the most expensive African footballers in history. Bony says he will look to create his own path at Manchester City.
He will be one of the main attractions at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations that get underway this Saturday in Equatorial Guinea.
