thumbnail Hello,

The Ivory Coast international says that, while he is not happy on the bench, he gets enough first-team action at the Etihad Stadium and has no desire to complete a move away

Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony insists he has no intention of leaving the club despite his lack of playing time this season.

Despite injuries to Sergio Aguero, the Ivory Coast international has not started for City in the Premier League since the 4-1 win over Sunderland on Boxing Day.

Bony has managed eight goals in all competitions for City this season and while reports have claimed Manuel Pellegrini’s side are open to offers for the former Swansea City forward, he is keen to stay.

“I absolutely do not want to leave Manchester City,” Bony told Eurosport. “I want to stay here. I am in the fifth biggest club in the world. Why should I look elsewhere?

“Of course, nobody is happy sitting on a bench. But I came to City to win trophies, I know I'm going to play close to 38 games this season.

“The price of my transfer does not put any pressure on me.”
