Toure slams ex-boss Guardiola in new interview

  • Pep Guardiola Man City 2017-18

Toure was restricted to a bit-part role in his eighth and final season at City as Guardiola steered the club to dominant triumphs in the Premier League and Carabao Cup.

Toure was previously linked with New York City FC, which are part of the City Football Group owned by Manchester City. Their cold relationship plunged to new lows this season with the Ivory Coast global starting just one league game.

Seluk says the Ivorian has lucrative offers overseas but wants to stay in the Premier League and is willing to join another big club on an incentivised deal to show the world he's still capable of playing at the highest level.

Yaya Toure has hit out at Pep Guardiola, claiming the Manchester City coach has a problem with players from Africa.

Toure played 319 matches over eight seasons with the Sky Blues and won the Premier League three times and the FA Cup once. Like all players I have bickered with my coaches.

"I do not know why but I have the impression that he was jealous, he took me for a rival. But Pep stopped me".

"He was cruel with me". He is a wonderful passer of the football and that combined with his expert vision would make him a real asset to Arsenal in the final third. "Do you really think that he would have been able to do that with [Andres] Iniesta at Barcelona?"

It never rains but pours as Germany lose to Austria
And the game was turned on its head when Alessandro Schopf drilled home Stefan Lainer's clever cut-back in the 69th-minute. Manuel Neuer made his first start since he fractured a metatarsal in September, and he played like he'd never been away.

The Ivory Coast global has finally ended his eight year association with Manchester City this summer, where he was won three Premier League titles, two League Cups and one FA Cup, and is now free to sign for anyone he likes.

Such a minimal pay cheque serves as a major contrast to the kind of money he was being paid throughout his time at Manchester City, with the former Barcelona man raking in £220,000-a-week at the Etihad Stadium, or £11.4m annually.

"Maybe we Africans are not always treated by some in the same way as others", said Toure in an interview with France Football.

"He stole my farewells with City, a club where the fans are magnificent". I have even got to ask myself if it was not because of my colour.

Pep himself was asked about Touré's comments earlier today by the Spanish press, responding bluntly: "I am not going to talk about the words of Yaya Touré".

"I've never seen something racist at the club, ever".
