Guardiola fires back at Yaya Toure, calls Ivorian midfielder 'a liar'

1528700779_4d95a Man City news: Pep Guardiola speaks out on Yaya Toure racism claims
Cassandra Castillo | 10 June, 2018, 23:45

Pep Guardiola has dismissed Yaya Toure's claim he has a problem with African players as a lie and questioned why the midfielder made a decision to try and tarnish his reputation so soon after leaving Manchester City.

The City boss told TV3: "They were lies and he knows it".

When the subject was brought up, Guardiola was reserved in his assessment, telling This Is Premier League: "I would say we made the best year in the Premier League ever".

Toure said "Pep brutally got rid of Bony", although the Ivorian's record since leaving City - four goals in 25 league appearances - hardly suggests Guardiola was mistaken. He never told me face to face'.

"He [Guardiola] insists he has no problems with black players, because he is too intelligent to be caught out, ' Toure claimed last week", Toure claimed.

"You know, Guardiola can not be called a dog", he told Sport24. "But Guardiola, by his very nature, is man's worst enemy", he added.

"He was cruel to me", Toure was quoted as saying.

"He turned all Africa against himself, many African fans turned away from Manchester City", he said. "As long as a success-based bonus system is in place. When I stop coaching, you will find me playing golf". "Yaya is a victor".

However, the former Bilbao chief's job was plunged into uncertainty after Roma knocked the Catalan side out of the Champions League in the quarter final.

Toure played 319 matches over eight seasons with the Sky Blues and won the Premier League three times and the FA Cup once.
