'Yaya Should Leave Pep's City'

With Yaya Toure having played only 29 Premier League minutes so far this season, one of his former teammates has now insisted the midfielder should leave Manchester City to save his career.

The 35-year-old signed a one-year extension at the end of last season, despite a troubled first year under Pep Guardiola at City.

However, Toure has only come off the bench twice in the league and featured in two League Cup fixtures for City in 2017/18 so far.

He could begin talks with a new club in January, and his former Ivory Coast teammate Emmanuel Eboue believes Toure should leave City to play regular football again.

"I'm not sure that he is going to stay because he wants to play," Eboue he said, as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

"If he's still there he's not going to play so I think for him it is better to leave – to go to play.

"He's a good player so every week when you stay on the bench and you don't play, it's hard in your head.

"It's time for him to leave. When you see City this year, the players they have are good – good midfielders, good strikers.

"So, for me, it is time to for him to leave."

The Ivorian has been linked with a move to City's sister club New York City, but it remains to be seen whether or not Guardiola would allow the experienced midfielder to leave before the end of the season.

Overall, Toure has made 303 appearances for City, scoring 79 goals and assisting another 48 strikes along the way.
