Stoke City's Ivorian striker Wilfried Bony expressed his displeasure over his lack of play time at the Premier League side, describing his situation at Stoke as "crazy."

The international striker, who is on loan from Manchester City, fell out of favour with Stoke coach Mark Hughes, making just 11 appearances in all competitions this season.

He has not played for the Potters since December, before he travelled to the African Cup of Nations, where the Elephants were eliminated from the first round.

"I want to know why I'm not playing," Bony was quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Tuesday.

"It is really crazy when the people say you are fine and that everything is okay, but you don't play.

"I have asked [Mark Hughes] and he says I am training well, my attitude is good and I don't need to change, but why I don't play, I don't know."

Asked if he regretted joining Stoke, the 28-year-old added, "yes of course. I do wonder sometimes why I came here."
