  • Toure and Guardiola

Guardiola's response comes after Touré made accusations in an interview with France Football.

"The stars aligned." numerous figures behind Barcelona's success under Guardiola have since moved on, with Begiristain joining him at Manchester City and Laporta moving along for Sandro Rosell in 2012.

Manchester City and Guardiola kept mute until the Spaniard was asked about Toure's comments in a recent interview in which he responded saying: "It is a lie; he knows it".

"We were together for two years. He never told me face to face", he added.

Toure played his final game for City late in the season against Brighton & Hove Albion and was given a tremendous send-off by the Etihad Stadium.

Sebastian Vettel 'surprised' by one Red Bull decision during Canadian GP qualifying
Vettel set the pace throughout the Q3 top 10 shootout, posting a time of 1m10.776s on his first run to take top spot. At one point, it looked like we might have had a battle for the lead as Bottas cut the deficit to Vettel.

Toure said "Pep brutally got rid of Bony", although the Ivorian's record since leaving City - four goals in 25 league appearances - hardly suggests Guardiola was mistaken.

"I had the time of my life there".

"We are the best?" said the City boss to the Daily Mirror.

Guardiola also insists he will never return for a second stint as Barcelona head coach and has no interest in becoming Camp Nou president. "We won one Premier League [title]".

While City amassed more points than any other Premier League side, they did not win the Champions League or FA Cup in the season. "As a coach, it's over [at Barça], because I am not the same, nor do they even look at me in the same way", he said on "Preguntas Freqüentes" on TV3. It was a generation of brutal players and the best player in the world (Lionel Messi). In the season just gone, while the midfielder was on the periphery for much of the campaign, City dominated the Premier League and clinched the League Cup too.
