Wilfried Bony wants to show Reds what they missed

SWANSEA City striker Wilfried Bony will have extra incentive to do well against Liverpool tomorrow morning after revealing he had a trial at the club in 2007.

Bony, 26, who tops the English Premier League scoring charts this year with 20, scored twice at Anfield last season and is keen to add to his tally as Swansea looks to consolidate its eighth place in the top division with a third straight win after Christmas successes over Hull City and Aston Villa.

"I was there for two weeks in 2007 when Rafa Benitez was the manager," Bony said.

"They wanted to see what sort of a player I was and it was amazing as a young guy to get the chance to use facilities like that and to see a stadium like that.

"I remember sitting up in the stand there watching a game and I enjoy the chance to go and play there because it was my first experience of English football," Bony added.

"It was nice to score a couple of times there last season, it is always nice to score at places where you have been and you were not able to make it.

"It's not that you have a particular point to prove, you always have a point to prove in football, but it is nice."

Bony has this game and the clash with QPR on New Year's Day left to play before he heads off to Equatorial Guinea for the Africa Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast.

Swansea will also be missing key midfielder Ki Sung Yueng for January as he will be joining South Korea in Australia for the Asian Cup.
