YAYA TOURE’S AGENT BLASTS PEP GUARDIOLA AGAIN-YOU ARE TRYING TO HUMILIATE YAYA
Yaya Toure’s agent has unleashed a savage verbal attack against Pep Guardiola regarding the manager’s treatment of his Ivorian midfielder.
Dimitri Seluk was previously told by the Manchester City manager to apologise for an interview he gave complaining about Toure’s Champions League omission.
But if there were any bridges left to burn, Seluk’s latest remarks will have turned them to ashes as he not only refused to give in to Guardiola’s demands but offered more scathing criticism.
He told the Mirror: ‘Why should I apologise when I am guilty of nothing but telling the truth? Pep talks about respect. But to get respect you have to show it.
‘Pep is allowing his ego to make decisions that aren’t in the best interests of Manchester City.’
Seluk thinks that the treatment of Toure is a response to the agent’s criticism following his player’s departure from Barcelona under Guardiola
This is his revenge. And it is personal, not professional.’
‘I think the plan was to humiliate Yaya – and all the other players who have made history for Manchester City in the last six years.
‘He has given everything to City for almost seven years. He has made history – like Hart and Nasri – and then they are treated by Pep like they are nothing.
‘Pep smiles at you. He makes you believe he is your best friend – and then he betrays you.’
Seluk claims he has attempted to contact both Guardiola and Txiki Begiristain to resolve the issue but was completely ignored by both.
The outspoken agent appears to have further diminished any chances of seeing Toure play for City again and in one final verbal barb called for Guardiola to say sorry himself.
‘If anyone deserves an apology it is Yaya, Sheikh Mansour and City’s fans – from Pep Guardiola.’
