Yaya's Agent Comments On Pep Dropping African Star

Yaya Toure's Agent Comments On Pep Guardiola Dropping African Star

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 14, 2017 08:00 PM @KeeganKruger

Yaya Toure’s controversial agent has commented on Pep Guardiola’s decision to drop the African star for Manchester City’s opening game against Feyenoord in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

Pep: Why I Dropped Yaya For Man City's UCL Tie

The former Ivory Coast international is yet to play a single minute of competitive football for the Citizens this season and did not travel with the squad to Rotterdam in midweek.

Guardiola refused to go into much detail to why Toure did not get selected for the fixture, but he did state that it was a “sporting decision” and that the player did know the full reasoning.

Dimitri Seluk, Toure’s agent, took to Twitter to voice his opinion on the matter and ensured the 34-year-old’s supporters that the player is fit and ready to play.

Guardiola and the midfielder’s agent have had their differences in the past, the latest being last September when the two had a public spat over Toure’s lack of playing time.

Africans Who Could Set The UCL Alight

The argument ended up with the former FC Barcelona manager refusing to play the African star until his outspoken manager apologised for his comments.

Yaya just does not suit Pep's style of play. Results have been very good for City without Yaya so fans can't really complain.

In the pre-season matches Yaya was sluggish...he still lacks the pace that Pep requires...more intense training will get him to the level...soon Yaya will be back in the team...

Yaya should have left M City, Pep made it clear right from his arrival that he doesn't like him.I understand things changed for the better as the season continued but still Yaya should have left end of last season
