The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with the turnaround that Yaya Toure has had at the Etihad over the last few months…
Following Pep Guardiola’s arrival, the Ivorian was largely expected to be phased out – with his brutish, physical playstyle largely not suited to Guardiola’s infamous tiki-taka method.
However, following a spat early on in the campaign, the Ivorian was slowly reintroduced to the first team, and whilst not a regular starter for the club, his performances quickly reminded the Man City fans of how good he was in his pomp.
Offering relentless energy and dedication, Toure is largely unique within the Man City first team in that his primary focus is not on passing and quick movement, and that has worked well under Guardiol.
The fans in the Transfer Tavern, then, were delighted when Man City confirmed earlier this week that Toure had signed a new one-year deal with the club – with his previous set to expire this summer.
Though he is unlikely to be a regular next year, his experience within the dressing room will be absolutely vital, and like the fans in the pub – the Man City fans on Reddit are delighted too.
Taking to the MCFC subreddit, fans have lavished praise upon Toure and revealed their delight at the news.
