Yaya Attacks Pep Again: 'Some Players Hate Him'

Yaya Toure Attacks Pep Guardiola Again: 'Some Players Hate Him'

By David Kappel - Jun 07, 2018 09:02 PM @kappilinho

After accusing Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola of disliking African players, Yaya Toure has continued his attack on his former boss, saying he is "manipulative and messes with players' heads".

Read: Yaya: Pep Doesn't Like African Players, I Want To Expose Him

Toure spoke to France publication L'Equipe earlier this week, during which he stated that he wants to expose the Spaniard for not liking African players.

In new quotes translated by Get French Football News, he has now suggested that some of Guardiola's players "hate" their coach.

"Like all players, I would joke with my coaches," Toure told L'Equipe, as cited by GFFN.

"With (Laurent) Banide, (Laszlo) Boloni, (Roberto) Mancini, (Manuel) Pellegrini. But, eventually, you reach a common ground and reconcile.

"With Pep, it's impossible because he's so rigid. The other players won't publicly say it, but some have grown to hate him.

"He's manipulative and messes with players' heads."

Toure also explained why he believes his relationship with Guardiola was so poor during his final two years at City.

"Maybe he was jealous and thought I was his rival. That's probably it," he added.

"We gave weird looks to each other. He would observe and gauge me without saying anything.

"I speak Catalan, Spanish and English. That should be enough to communicate with me. I guess not…

"Every time we ran into each other, he seemed uncomfortable. As if I blocked the light on him. As if he understood how to read me perfectly."

Toure will leave City as a free agent after the club decided not to extend his contract. He seems to be keen to stay in England, with his agent suggesting he would join any of the top six sides for an astonishing wage of just R17 a week.

generally speniard or catalan are very reserved and introvert people. we can't say they are cowards r lack personality. you can't give attitude to your boss and you call that ego or big personality. not yaya can educate us, please.

Sorry crybaby Toure teams have more than 30 players in their teams yet only 15 players are selected to play.When you were playing every week other players were side lined and yet they never talk bad about their coaches.

Haaahaaa! Yaya you make me laugh now about this relationship with Pep. Like I said, Pep is a control freak. If he cant figure you out what you are like and how to influence you differently, he gets weird. He avoids contact or communication. At Barca, they say he would lock himself in the office for a long time. He is not racist though, but cant handle strong personalities. That's it.

just go play a elsewhere and stop public onslaught of him in media, His teams did well all the times he was in charge. Zlatan Ibromavic is not African but Pep did the same so ?

if you read Zlatan book he says Pep did the exact thing to him , we can't always cry out racism when things don't go our way, Yaya is bitter that Man City replaced him, phela he was like the best thing before pep, plus why did he stay so long under a coach who is racist?

@Khosism it's been personal since Barca days, if you remember Yaya's words after joining City you will see it's always been personal.

Why is everyone crusifying Yaya for his opinion? The guy is talking about what he has observed and yet people are acting like they were in the dressing room with Pep. Yaya feels like Pep pushed him out of City like he did at Barca, so the guy has the right to vent however way that will bring him closure. If you don't like it just don't read about it.
