Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony has revealed he has found recent times to be the ‘worst year’ in his career, according to the Daily Mail.
The Ivorian forward only joined the Etihad outfit in January, following an excellent spell with Swansea, when he was one of the elite strikers in the league.
However since then, the 26-year old has struggled for form and fitness, scoring just twice in 19 appearances.
Competing with the likes of Sergio Aguero has proved difficult for the player, who has found it hard to live up to his price tag.
‘It’s been the worst spell of my career without question’, he revealed.
The former Vitesse forward could find himself increasingly called upon in the coming weeks, after teammate Sergio Augero has ruled out for up to a month with a hamstring.
‘It’s never good when your team-mates are injured but that’s the way football goes sometimes.’
Determined not to be viewed as big money flop, the striker believes it will only take a single goal to spark him back into the form that persuaded the North West giants to splash out almost £30m to sign him.
‘All I need is the first goal to come and hopefully many others will follow.’
