In something that looks like a turn-around of the Guardiola and Yaya Toure feud, the one time african best player of the year with courage asked his agent, Dimitri Seluk to make peace with Pep Guardiola, the Manchestercity manager.
Yaya Toure Being Re-considered
The Ivory Coast midfielder has played only one game this season, as Pep Guardiola deemed it fit for the Ivorian to remain in bench. Though, Yaya Toure is always training with his team mates, it still didn’t make him appear in a game.
His misfortune started after his agent got in to a media clash with Pep Guardiola. Yaya Toure’s agent, Seluk has revealed that his client has asked him to end the war with the Mancity manager and coach after Guardiola recently made a statement that he would give Toure another chance.
“I have spoken to Yaya in the last few days and he has asked me to make peace with Pep,” Seluk told the Daily Mirror.
“I agreed with him that I had to do what I could to make the situation better, because Yaya and Manchester City have been caught in the crossfire.
“Some City fans have contacted Yaya to say that a way forward must be found. And some of Yaya’s team-mates at City have also contacted me to say the same thing.
“I am not an unreasonable man and I don’t think that Pep will ever love me, but the most important thing is that we try to forgive what has happened in the past and develop a new relationship.
“This is a genuine gesture. I hope Pep accepts that my hope is that we can start with a clean page.
“Of course, I hope Pep takes the decision to bring Yaya back into his squad. But even if he doesn’t, I can assure him that I am not going to speak about him any more in the media.
“I have contacted the Mirror to send this message to Pep because he hasn’t returned my calls. But I also wanted to say these words in public because I felt it was important that it was me who make the first step towards peace, respect and friendship.
“I really do hope this can be a new start and that Yaya can help Manchester City to win more trophies.”
Yaya Toure’s last game for the City’s was the Champions league qualifier against Steaua Bucharest.
I don’t know if this means a positive turn-around for the former African best player. Do you think that Guardiola will start playing Yaya Toure? Drop your comments in the comment box bellow.
