Toure's Agent: African Witch Doctors Will Curse Pep For What He Did To Yaya

Yaya Toure's Agent: African Witch Doctors Will Curse Manchester City's Pep Gaurdiola For What He Did To Yaya

By David Kappel - Jun 05, 2018 01:35 PM @kappilinho

Yaya Toure recently made the shocking claim that Pep Guardiola does not like African players, and now his agent has joined in on the criticism, suggesting that African witch doctors will curse the Manchester City boss for what he did to his client.

The Ivory Coast midfielder, who is effectively a free agent and is still looking for a new club, accused Guardiola of disliking African stars, insisting he wants to "expose" his former manager.

Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk has now echoed his client's words, and suggested that "African shamans" – a term that can be construed to mean witch doctors or sangomas – will prevent Guardiola from lifting the UEFA Champions League in the future.

"God sees everything. As a man who acted with Yaya, the legend of the club, which under different pretexts did not give the opportunity to go on the field," he said, as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

"He turned all Africa against himself, many African fans turned away from Manchester City. And I'm sure that many African shamans in the future will not allow Guardiola to win the Champions League.

"This will be, for Guardiola, an African curse. Life will show whether I am right or not."

Seluk also insisted that Guardiola only goes to clubs with good structures and lots of money, before labelling the Spaniard's treatment of Toure as a "crime".

"If you assign my grandmother to Bayern Munich, the team will still become the champions! There's a consistency with Guardiola's choice: go to clubs with a huge budget, which, without him, become champions all the time," he added

"After Guardiola in the next two or three years will not win the Champions League with Manchester City he will be kicked out, perhaps Yaya will return to the club, and in any capacity.

"The fact that Guardiola ended Yaya's career in Manchester City is not even a mistake, but a crime. But the boomerang will return, Pep. You will still see what the African shamans are. Remember this always.

"At Benfica, there is the curse of coach Bela Guttmann, after which the team loses all the European cup finals. And Guardiola will beat this record, despite the money injected into him."

Toure made 316 appearances for City, scoring 79 goals and assisting another 50 strikes along the way, and helped the club lift seven trophies during his stint at the Etihad. He also received a massive farewell from the Citizens, with one of the club's training pitches being named after the African.

However, he fell out with Guardiola in the Spaniard's first year at the club after being dropped from the coach's Champions League squad. Later, though, the two parties called a truce, and Toure even signed a one-year contract extension. In his final season, though, the Ivorian only played 17 times for the Citizens.

It remains to be seen how Guardiola and City react to Toure's claims, as well as his agent's remarks.

Unprofessional behaviour my man u no longer the professional I always know your agent fail to get you a good contract and prove Peppers wrong he has turned you to whistle blower or African activist I'm glad he's not a racist because sterling is black fern and fernandinho is black Alaba,Cowan, D Alves,Thiago are all not whites may be he doesn't want to depend on these players because of their international reason where they have to a season in a crucial stage as Man city or R Mancini due the influence Yamafeelings had in his team so these things are counting African player must understand this if Caf is serious about African players in Europe they must change African nations calender remember Europe have no players in Africa they are like 70% stake holders to us they invest in football more than we do so African players they need to understand this Vieira and many others who didn't represent African countries didn't suffer from this it's not their problem it's our let us be honest they won't stop their leagues for our players so it's better prevention than cure Q
