Pep Guardiola responds to Yaya Toure accusations

Since Pep Guardiola's arrival, Toure has only played a bit-part role.

"He turned all Africa against himself, many African fans turned away from Manchester City", he said.

The manager has worked with Toure for many years throughout their respective careers, and each has enjoyed prosperous moments during their time together.

He was eventually offloaded to Manchester City arriving at the beginning of the clubs revolution.

At Barcelona, the duo won the UEFA Champions League in 2009, with Toure impressing in the final.

"I have the impression that Pep, without acknowledgement or respect, did everything to spoil my last season".

Toure takes a place on the bench.

Speaking to TV3, Guardiola said: "It's a lie and he knows it".

According to The Daily Mail, West Ham have opened talks with Toure, who is set to become a free agent following his exit from City this month. "Do you really think he could've been like that with Iniesta?" I even started wondering to myself whether it was about my colour.

"Maybe us Africans aren't always treated the same by certain people".

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

"He's too intelligent to be caught".

'But the day he will line up a team in which we find five Africans, not naturalised, I promise I will send him a cake'.

Guardiola and Toure shake hands.

"The stars aligned." numerous figures behind Barcelona's success under Guardiola have since moved on, with Begiristain joining him at Manchester City and Laporta moving along for Sandro Rosell in 2012.
