Reports: Yaya Toure Has No Clue Why Pep Guardiola Is Not Playing Him

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 19, 2017 10:01 AM @KeeganKruger

Manchester City stalwart Yaya Toure reportedly has no idea why Pep Guardiola has decided to not involve him in first-team duties of late.

Pep: Why I Dropped Yaya For Man City's UCL Tie

The 34-year-old is yet to play a single minute of competitive football this season, and has not been included in the Citizens' last three match-day squads.

The former FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss had previously told members of the media that the Ivorian was sidelined due to a "sporting decision", and that he had communicated this to the midfielder.

However, a source close to the player has revealed that Toure is apparently unaware of why he is not playing, and has not been told what he needs to do to regain his place in the starting XI.

"Yaya is fit and ready to play. Pep picks the team, and it is his right to leave Yaya out of the team," the source told the Daily Mirror.

"But Yaya was surprised to hear him say that there is a sporting problem and that he has been made aware what the issue is.

"Yaya's relationship with Pep is good, but he has not been told anything in detail about what he needs to do to get back into the squad."

The former Ivory Coast international has made 299 appearances for City so far, scoring 79 goals and assisting a further 48 strikes.

Until, the team thus wrong, that is when he will put him in ! Honestly the team is doing very well, to an extend that you forget that he is a Man City player!
