  The Ivory Coast striker started his career at age of 16 with the shirt of Issia Wazi. After one successful year he moved on loan to Sparta Prague and played in their B team. In the second year in Czech Republic, Bony sign permanent deal, he was moved in the first team and played 16 matches. Wilfried scored 24 goals for the Prague team for 4 years and attracted the attention of Vitesse Arnhem. Dutch team pays 3.520.000 million pounds to have Bony in their team and he started to repay from the debut match scoring against De Graafshap in 72 minute. Bony has scored 38 goals in just 57 matches for Vitesse and become the leading star of club and one of the most interesting players in Eredivise.

  Wilfried Bony’s preferred foot is right, but he can score a lot with his left one, too. He is really calm with the ball, which is very helpful for a striker. He has composure in the opponent penalty area. The striker has good acceleration, pace and very good and powerful shot. Wilfried Bony has a very good body structure and I can describe him as a beast. He is very good in tackling and shielding the ball.

Clip with skills:

Game Rating

Football Manager 2013: 3 stars and a half. After development he’s one of the best strikers.

FIFA 13: Rating 78, potential 82. That means Bony is not one of the top strikers in the game.


Best ability: Goal hunter - he is very good at scoring. The ability to be at the right place, when the attack is developed is very needed for a striker and I definitely tell you, that Bony has this.

Weakness: Heading - despite scoring some goals with his head, this one of the dimensions where the player can work on in order to become one of the best.

Potential team playing for: Atletico Madrid, Inter or Tottenham.

AF Rating:  I evaluate his AF Rating to 9. This means that he will be successful transfer for top teams in top leagues at very good price.
