Yaya Comments On Exit Rumours

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has commented on rumours he could leave the club in January amid speculation he is unhappy with his bench role under Pep Guardiola.

The Ivorian extended his contract with the Citizens for another year at the beginning of the season, but has made only five appearances so far.

Toure is expected to leave City at the end of the campaign when his contract expires, but it has also been claimed he could join New York City in January already.

"You want me to play? Tell the manager," Toure told Reuters when asked about his situation after appearing in City's UEFA Champions League clash against Feyenoord on Wednesday.

"Look at my face; do you think I am frustrated? Am I enjoying? Of course.

"(If) I am frustrated... I would say to the manager 'I don't want to be on the bench and I want to go home'."

Toure also insisted that City's brilliant start to the season will mean nothing if they do not stay focused when the big tests come around.

"We are in good form, (but) when I see Juventus, or Real Madrid, Barcelona – all these teams, we've got to be stronger and better," he added.

"Statistics mean nothing, and we have to play against them and see where we are."
