Toure says Guardiola 'has problem with African players'

  • Pep Guardiola will never win Champions League again because African shamans won't allow it, says Yaya Toure's agent

There has been no reaction from City or Guardiola to Toure's accusations but the Guardian claims that the club are "disappointed by the player's remarks".

During eight seasons at City, Toure helped transform the club from a mid-table Premier League side to a regular at the summit of English football.

"There had already been some tensions", said Toure, who added that he was now taking responsibility for "being the one who smashed the myth of Guardiola".

Toure was previously linked with New York City FC, which are part of the City Football Group owned by Manchester City.

He was cruel with me, ' said Toure.

"But when you realise that he has problems with Africans, wherever he goes, I ask myself questions".

Toure's only league start came in City's final home match against Brighton in of their title-winning season.

"As he is very vain, he wants to win with his players, those he chose, not those chosen by others". He is a wonderful passer of the football and that combined with his expert vision would make him a real asset to Arsenal in the final third.

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

"This will be, for Guardiola, an African curse". Guardiola could not repeat the achievements of Heynckes, being the next three years at the helm of the best German club, which without Guardiola again leads and wins. Manchester City has now extended the contract with him for three years.

He was also disdainful of the 47-year-old's record at Bayern Munich and insisted his achievements so far at City are not that impressive given how much he has spent.

'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. We are not so interested in money, as perhaps it seemed to many.

Toure accused the Spaniard of "unfair treatment" during his spell at Manchester City and formerly at Barcelona.

"I believe that a player like Yaya would not reject Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool".

"And never before has a top footballer with leadership qualities rejected any club, especially when they don't have to pay for it".
