Boateng Backs Pep in Yaya Row

Bayern Munich Defender Jerome Boateng Backs Manchester City Boss Pep Guardiola In Yaya Toure Row

By Keegan Kruger - Jun 07, 2018 03:31 PM @KeeganKruger

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has taken former manager Pep Guardiola's side following Yaya Toure's recent controversial claims about the Spaniard.

De Bruyne Weighs In On Guardiola/Toure Row

In an astonishing interview with France Football earlier this week, the Ivorian suggested that his time with Guardiola at Barcelona paved the way for an uncomfortable two seasons in the Premier League, and also accused the Spaniard of disliking African players.

Boateng, who is part of Germany's 2018 FIFA World Cup squad, has since made it clear he does not agree with the midfielder's opinion of the Citizens manager. 

"I cannot share that opinion at all. I have never had a problem with him (Pep Guardiola)," the defender said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"On the contrary, I found, as a coach, he was super. And that is why it is hard for me to comprehend."

Pep Refuses To Entertain Yaya's 'African' Claims

The 29-year-old central defender made 118 appearances under Guardiola at Bayern, scoring four goals and assisting a further 11 strikes.

Are you surprised Boateng has come out and backed the Spaniard? Have your say in the comments section below.

Lol i wonder which coach is gonna sign this old Yaya if he's not gonna be able to drop him if he's under-perfomrming or else he'll be labelled as a racist by africans. This topic is exactly the reason we're labelled as ignorant.

Just because you are 80% european it does'nt mean you have to undermine what a 100% african player said about that obnoxious man but the fact remains you'll never be treated like a european and be given the captain's armband you'll remain the black monkey you are to the whites.

people are quick to point out that boateng is not an african, so who is he. the guy has a family in ghana. chosing to play for german has no thing to with betrayal. even his brother, if he was good enough, he was going to chose german over ghana.

Not liking Yaya doesn't mean you don't like Africans ,not liking Joe Heart doesn't mean you hate English players came on! Pep doesn't feel Yaya period! That has got nothing to do with Africans @all ,and having an Agent of Dimitri didn't help the matters either
