Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony believes his partnership with Michu is blossoming
WILFRIED Bony believes his new attacking partnership with Michu is beginning to blossom.
The striker was bought to add firepower to the Swansea City ranks after signing in a club record £12 million move from Vitesse Arnhem last month.
Bony's arrival should allow Michu to drop into his preferred advanced midfield role, and it is hoped the duo can form a formidable pairing.
"He has good technique and positioning," said Bony.
"We know a little bit more every day and are getting better and better with each other.
"It is good for me because it is not easy for me to come and adapt in three or four games.
"We will miss some balls because of a lack of communication. I think we have to work on that and try to do better every time. We talk a lot off the pitch."
Michu stunned the Premier League by scoring 22 goals during his first season in English football following a £2.2 million switch from Rayo Vallecano.
Bony cost more than five times that, but would be happy to make a similar impact.
"Michu did very well last season and this season will also be tough because they know him," said the 24-year-old.
"I think and hope he will do better than last season to help the team.
"Maybe it will help me if defenders are looking at Michu."
Bony has made an impressive start to life at the Liberty and scored his fourth goal of the season against Petroul.
But there was a touch of fortune about that effort, which squirmed in off the back of goalkeeper Pecanha.
"For me it is good for my football to improve and learn." he added.
"Premier League football is more intensive and more tough.
"But I try to do better and better every day to adapt. We want to do better than last year and use all the opportunities we have."
