Toure agent worried about Pep


The agent of Yaya Toure has admitted he is fearful Pep Guardiola could sell his player if he takes over at Manchester City and believes the Bayern Munich is “over-rated”.

The Spaniard sold Toure to Manchester City when manager of Barcelona in 2010 is the hot favourite to succeed Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad this summer after revealing he is coming to work in the Premier League.

While most associated with City would consider this a good move, Dimitri Seluk holds a different viewpoint.

“Pep is a great coach,” he was quoted as saying in the Sunday Mirror. “But he has won the title at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

“The truth is that my grandfather would win the title with Barcelona and Bayern Munich because they are big clubs with great players. I’d like to see Pep take a club that is eighth or ninth and make them champions.

“I don’t know what Guardiola’s plans are, but – after what happened at Barcelona – of course it is a worry that when he comes Yaya will be out. I hope not and Yaya hopes not.”

ed with what they put up today."

There was over half an hour of the game remaining when Walters struck, and the underdogs created plenty of opportunities to secure a second equaliser, but Donny were unable to force a replay at the Britannia Stadium.

"I thought our performance was good," Doncaster manager Darren Ferguson was quoted as saying by BBC Sport. "We were really unlucky not to get something out of that game.

"We worked very hard, and if we play like that every week, we will win games.

"We had a couple of clear chances at the end, with Nathan Tyson and Andy Butler, but in the cups you don't get a second chance and you have to take them.”

Ferguson went on to reference an off-the-ball incident that was pointed out to him after the game, in which Philipp Wollscheid apparently grabbed a Donny man by the throat, along with a challenge in the penalty area by Mame Biram Diouf on Craig Alcock.

"We should have had a penalty at 1-1 and Wollscheid could have been sent off,” said the former Manchester United player. “We felt that the little decisions didn't go our way."
