After Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis scored twice in City’s comfortable 6-2 FA Cup win over Tranmere, manager Garry Monk has tipped the Frenchman to become key while the side are thin on attacking options, reports Sky
The 29-year-old was signed on a free transfer from Olympique Lyonnais in the summer, but has featured largely from the bench, with first-choice striker Wilfried Bony spearheading the attack on a regular basis.
But with Bony (Ivory Coast) out on international duty for the Africa Cup of Nations he was given a rare start in the FA Cup and took his opportunity with two goals.
“Gomis probably hasn’t had the amount of minutes he would have liked, but in terms of why I brought him to the club, you could see it there today. Hopefully he takes it into this next period now, he will be the first choice, and he is ready to go. Hopefully he produces performances like that,” said Monk.
