Swansea goalkeeper Michael Vorm has hailed the club’s two main strikers and revealed his excitement at seeing them in action this season. Michu and new signing Wilfried Bony will lead the club’s strikeforce this upcoming season under manager Michael Laudrup, and have wasted absolutely no time in getting to know each other. The two combined well for the Welsh club, lifting them to an impressive 4-0 win over Swedish side Malmo in their Europa League qualifying match last week.

Michu and Bony combined for three of the team’s four goals in their first competitive match of the season, with debutant Bony grabbing a brace. Michu, meanwhile, is no stranger to success in the Premier League, scoring a sensational 22 goals during last season’s campaign.

Now, Vorm has hailed the duo as “unbelievable” after their first match, and also issued praise for new signing Jonjo Shelvey. Shelvey joined the club from Liverpool after being deemed surplus to requirements by Brendan Rodgers.

“It’s unbelievable. This was just the second time they’ve played together – and that’s why I am on their side in training!” Vorm told reporters after the Europa League match, according to Wales Online.

“Bony has fitted into our style straight away, and the same is true for Jonjo Shelvey, it looks like he’s played with us for years. It’s such a joy that we’ve strengthened again after last season.

“Communication is very important, and from the moment Bony came in he has been very open. You can talk to him and give him pointers, and he speaks good English. He’s eager to score and do well. After scoring so many goals in Holland last season, there’s a bit of pressure on him.”

Swansea start their season against Premier League champions Manchester United on the 17th of August in the league’s first evening kickoff of the year.
