  • Man City news: Pep Guardiola speaks out on Yaya Toure racism claims

PEP GUARDIOLA has branded Yaya Toure's accusation he has an issue with African players "a lie".

The Spaniard initially did not want to comment on Toure's harsh criticism after the Ivory Coast midfielder suggested that he had treated him less favourably because he is African.

Manchester City coach Josep Guardiola says that he will never coach Barcelona again.

'They were lies and he knows it, ' he told TV3 in Spain.

"We have been together during two years".

Guardiola refuted the allegations and also highlighted the timing of Toure's interview.

Similar success followed at Bayern Munich before the 47-year-old guided Manchester City to Premier League and EFL Cup glory this term.

And when you consider his 316 appearances, scoring 79 goals, you'd think he will be going down as as a true City legend. The Ivorian said: "It feels like he was jealous of me, he saw me as a rival.as if I was taking the limelight away from him. I'm not the first, other players have asked the same question too at Barcelona".

Toure fell out of favour under Guardiola last season, making just one Premier League start all campaign as City marched to the title in record-breaking fashion.

Toure played his final game for City late in the season against Brighton & Hove Albion and was given a tremendous send-off by the Etihad Stadium. He'll never admit it [not liking Africans].

"We had a generation of brutal players and the best player in the world [Lionel Messi] as well".

"I am a coach and I am good at what I do, you can't be everything", he said.
