Yaya Toure Scores In First Start Under Guardiola

Former Ivorian international, Yaya Toure, has made his first Premier League start under coach Pep Guardiola.

Toure had been left out of Guardiola’s team since the start of the season over a misunderstanding with the player’s agent, Mr Dimitri Seluk.

The former Bayern coach said it was wrong for Mr Seluk to criticise him in public and then vowed never to use Toure until he is apologised to.

This forced Toure to publicly apologise to the coach and Manchester City about two weeks ago in order to save his career at the club.

Under former City coach, Manuel Pellegrini, Toure was one of the key players of the team, helping the club win titles.

But since Guardiola took charge at the Etihad, the lanky midfielder had not been considered for games.

He had been out of favour of the manager since his days at Barcelona. It was Guardiola who sold Toure to Man City about six years ago.

Meanwhile, as at the time of filing this report, Toure has netted City’s first goal against Crystal Palace.
