Pep Guardiola’s Assurance To Yaya Toure

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has given African star Yaya Toure some assurance despite his lack of first team football.

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

The former FC Barcelona star made his 300th appearance for the Citizens on Wednesday night in the 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion in the League Cup.

After the game, Guardiola promised the 34-year-old that he will be getting game time and that he remains a valuable member of the squad.

“We are going to use him,” Guardiola said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

“We need him, and of course it’s not easy for the players who didn’t play in the last games.

“But he showed his personality because it’s not easy for him to play in these type of games at West Brom but he did it well, and that’s why we’re happy for him to come back.”

Toure played the full 90 minutes against the Baggies, which was his first taste of competitive football this season.

Pep Guardiola is spoilt for choices with the squad that City have.What I like is that the team is winning without Toure so he must just wait in the queue like every body else...such as Sane...Bernardo..Delph...Gunda gon...the season is too long and challenging.Eventually....his time will come..Qha ke.

The coach does not like him, he is just forced by circumstances. He will field him against lower clubs to smear "peanut butter" in our eyes.
