Yaya Touré certainly comes off as a stable, well-adjusted individual, doesn’t he?

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.

Just seen that.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola "often has problems with Africans", says ex-Blues midfielder Yaya Toure.

The Ivorian, who left City in May after eight years at the club, says he wants to "break the myth" about Guardiola, whom he describes as "jealous".

"Maybe we Africans are not always treated by some in the same way as others," said Toure


That's unbelievable. Toure is a whole heap of trouble - steer well clear.

An absolute bell of a bloke. I'm sure Guardiola is very keen to be rid of him.

“Yaya has received many offers from different countries, big money offers, but we have decided to devote the next season to Guardiola,” [agent] Dimitri Seluk told sport24 .

“To proving to the Manchester City fans that Yaya is not finished with football. He is full of strength and energy and wants to play in England this season.

“At a time when English clubs are spending huge sums of money on players, I officially declare that Yaya is ready to move to any top-six English club as a free agent with a salary of £1 per week. As long as a success-based bonus system is in place.”
