Annoyed Toure: PSG Quotes Out Of Context!

Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure, has made the news for all the wrong reasons since the season has finished.

He has now come out and claimed his latest quotes about his admiration for Paris Saint-Germain were ‘taken out of context’.

"The media took what I said out of context," he told French radio station RFI

"For the moment, there's nothing planned. Too many things have been said, that annoyed me.

"I want to take advantage of this opportunity to put things into context. It's very important. I simply said that it was nice to be a player who is quite coveted and it was an honour to play for PSG."

Toure’s future at City has come into question since his agent Smitry Seluk claimed Toure was disappointed that no club official had congratulated him on his birthday.

The Ivory Coast international was undergoing treatment on a minor left thigh strain in Qatar before teaming up with the World Cup squad in the USA on Thursday, but confirmed he will be ready for the World Cup.

"My objective is the World Cup, because the country expects," Toure added.

"Everything went well with the doctors. They did some great work. It's difficult with that kind of injury, but I am going to be quickly back out on the pitch."

What do you think are the reasons behind Toure’s recent actions? Have your say in the comment section below.
