Toure agent challenges Guardiola

The agent of Yaya Toure has challenged Pep Guardiola to 'admit he was wrong' about his client if Manchester City do not win this season's Champions League.

The Ivorian was left out of the squad of 21 which the new City boss entered for the group stages of European football's flagship club tournament despite him being only one of two players to have won it before, new goalkeeper Claudio Bravo the other.

Dimitri Seluk has taken aim at Guardiola for the omission and has asked him will he prove he was wrong if City don't win the competition.

“It is Pep’s decision and we must respect that," he told the Sunday Mirror.

“If he wins the Champions League for City this season then I will travel to England and I will say on television that Pep Guardiola is the best manager in the world.

“But if City don’t win the Champions League then I hope that Pep has got the balls to say that he was wrong to humiliate a great player like Yaya.

“Yaya is a professional and so he will do everything he is asked to do.

“Perhaps Pep will think he is good enough to play in the final 10 minutes of a League Cup game against a third division team – and, yes, I am joking.

“But what I can tell you is that Yaya will spend the season at City. He will not be leaving in January. He hopes that he will get the chance to prove himself.”
