Wilfried Bony has revealed he now wishes he had not joined Stoke City last summer from Manchester City, the Daily Mirror reports, after seeing his season-long loan turn sour.
Wilfried Bony last played on December 27, before having a month away for the Africa Cup of Nations. His last start was on November 19 and he hasn’t even been included in Stoke’s squad for their last four games.
“I want to know why I’m not playing. It is really crazy when the people say you are fine and that everything is okay, but you don’t play,” he told the daily newspaper.
“I have asked [Mark Hughes] and he says I am training well, my attitude is good and I don’t need to change that but why I don’t play, I don’t know, I can say it is like maybe to p*** you off, that you don’t play.”
Having remained at Stoke, Bony is now increasingly confused at his current predicament under Hughes.
“Not good at the moment, because it is a crazy situation,” he added. “The last time he says I need to be patient, but patient of what? I don’t know.
“I am not playing for no reason and since he spoke about the Chinese clause in my contract, I don’t play – it’s really strange.”
Asked if he regretted joining Stoke, Bony added: “Yes of course. I do wonder sometimes why I came here.”
