Bony wants to prove himself at Man City

Manchester City's Wilfried Bony insists he wants to fight for his place in manager Pep Guardiola's team despite the abundance of striking talent at the club.

The 28-year-old spent last season out on loan at Stoke City where he only scored twice in 10 Premier League games, but is confident he can regain the form that convinced City to sign him in 2015.

The Ivorian scored 26 goals for Swansea City in 54 Premier League games before signing for the Citizens in January 2015 for £28m. He has since failed to get back to that level of performance, and will face competition from Gabriel Jesus, Sergio Aguero, and Kelechi Iheanacho.

"I love the club, the fans," Bony told Sky Sports News HQ. "I want to show that Wilfried Bony is still the same player. I've been through a difficult time.

"Leading the goalscoring two years ago, it's still me, nothing has changed, just a difficult time. I just want to show them I can do more than that so I just need to get myself ready."
