Manchester City star’s agent hits out at incoming manager

ToureManchester City fans playing a game of cards in the Tavern are becoming increasingly frustrated by one of their main stars this season, with his latest comments sparking angry outbursts at the bar and the house of cards has come tumbling down.

Manchester City midfielder Yay Toure recently spoke of the ‘pathetic’ and ‘indecent’ decision to award Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with the African Player of the Year award, which denied Touré the achievement of winning the award for the fifth consecutive time.

But now Dimitri Seluk, the 32-year old’s agent, has claimed that Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola, who is due to replace Manuel Pellegrini at City at the end of the season, is over-rated as a manager. The Spanish coach was in charge at Barcelona when the Spanish giants sold Touré to City back in 2010.

“Pep is a great coach. But he has won the title at Barcelona and Bayern Munich. The truth is that my grandfather would win the title with Barcelona and Bayern Munich because they are big clubs with great players.”

“I’d like to see Pep take a club that is eighth or ninth and make them champions.”

Seluk also admitted that he is concerned about his client’s future at the Etihad should Guardiola take over at the helm of the Blues.

“I don’t know what Guardiola’s plans are but, after what happened at Barcelona, of course it is a worry that when he comes Yaya will be out. I hope not and Yaya hopes not.”

Manchester City fans, how much longer does Yaya Touré have at your club? Let us know in the comments below!
