Toure: Barca Afraid Of Us

Yaya Toure believes that his former club Barcelona are scared of his current club Manchester City and believes that Manuel Pellegrini's men will become the greatest club in the world very soon.

The Ivorian has been in magnificent form so far this season and has helped the club qualify for the knockout phase of the Champions League, where he will face his former club whom he left in 2010.

City will take on Barca in the last 16 and Toure thinks that Gerardo Martino's side fear elimination to the Citizens, whom he thinks will be the biggest team on the planet in a few seasons.

"To make history sometimes it takes longer," the 30-year-old told Sky Sports.

 "I am a lucky man to be in the right place because the club have brought in fantastic players.”

"Everything is in a good place to be honest, and I'm sure in a couple of years Man City will become the greatest club in the world,” the Manchester City midfielder added.

"[Barcelona] are quite afraid about us, the way they see us play in the Premier League at home especially, they're quite scared.”

"We play fantastic football and we score goals, it's total attack. But it's going to be a tough game and for us we know if we're to win we need to be at the top of our game."
