Yaya Toure says Matic was a tough Bastard: He was my toughest opponent
Departing Manchester City Legend YAYA Toure has described Manchester United star Nemanja Matic as his toughest ever opponent.
The Manchester City icon, 34, will leave the Etihad this summer following a trophy-laden eight-year spell at the club.
Toure has won three Premier League titles, one FA Cup and three League Cups since leaving Barcelona in 2010 – but reckons Matic is the most difficult player to go up against.
Speaking about the Serbian ex-Chelsea midfielder, Toure revealed: “I hate him, this b*****d.
“He’s such a difficult player to play against. Tall and strong as well.
“It’s been fun to play against him, even though it’s difficult. He’s powerful, he’s tall.
“To be able to find an opponent to play against me and stop me… there’s few of them, but Matic was one of the close ones who was able to give me problems.
“He can run. He can fall back. He can track. He can fight. He’s a good, good player.”
Meanwhile, on his own City favourite, Toure added he can’t look beyond Sergio Aguero.
The Ivorian said: “Everybody knows I have a feeling for Aguero.
“I love Aguero. This guy is such a good striker. He’s complete.
“I love David Silva and Vincent Kompany as well.
“I’m going to miss my team-mates, I’m going to miss my little [Raheem] Sterling, my little [Leroy] Sane. They look like my babies he laughed.” Yaya is rumored s to be wanted by Everton, Burnley and Wolves in England ..Outside the British climes Monaco , Greece side Panathinakos and FC Zurich want the ageing Ivory coast ace
