Yaya Toure's agent, who has been in a war of words with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, has once again ranted about the Spaniard's decision to freeze out the Ivorian.
Dimitri Seluk has not backed down after Guardiola demanded he apologise for his recent comments, and has insisted that, although the former FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss gets good results, his "personality is far from great".
The African star's agent also called for City's leadership to intervene in the manager's decision to overlook Toure.
"They must say to Guardiola, 'Yaya is our family,'" Seluk told The Sun.
"How is it possible to speak like this? It is not correct to do that. It is not correct to give up on a top-class player.
"But this is his decision – he is a good coach but his personality is s***.
"If Yaya is on the field or not, everyone will ask: 'What is this decision from Guardiola?'
"Normally, a person cannot make a decision like this. And it is England, not North Korea or Afghanistan, so people will discuss whether it is right and they will have their opinions.
"OK, Guardiola has won matches this season, so everyone must only see his fantastic football.
"But his personality is far from great. I repeat the message from everywhere that he has been from Barcelona to Bayern Munich. Many people don't like him.
"Many people don’t understand how it is possible to do what he has done with players."
Guardiola snubbed Toure for City's UEFA Champions League squad earlier this season, and the Ivorian has not featured in a single Premier League match this campaign.
