Pep Guardiola pays no heed to Yaya Toure's agent's truce calls
Yaya Toure is yet to appear for Manchester City under Pep Guardiola this season.
Agent of former Manchester City star superstar, Yaya Toure, has revealed that he intends to make peace with Pep Guardiola. However, the Spaniard has been reluctant to answer his call. The war of words between the two began the moment the Ivory Coast international left Camp Nou for The Etihad. As luck would have it, the former Barcelona manager eventually became his manager earlier this year when he took the reins at City.
One must have thought that there would be a ceasefire, but it wasn’t to be as things further escalated when Seluk (Yaya Toure’s agent) verbally attacked the former Bayern Munich boss, prompting the latter to keep Yaya Toure out of his plans.
And it seems as though Toure is sick of being an outcast as he has asked Seluk to make peace.
“I have spoken to Yaya in the last few days and he has asked me to make the peace with Pep.
“I agreed with him that I had to do what I could to make the situation better because Yaya and Manchester City have been caught in the crossfire.”
Seluk then went on to claim that this treaty of concord is a genuine attempt to get back on the right track with the former Barcelona boss. He also stated that while he knows the damage done is irreparable, they can all forgive each other and begin afresh.
“I am genuine in what I say. I am not an unreasonable man.
“I don’t think that Pep will ever love me, but the most important thing is that we try to forgive what has happened in the past and develop a new relationship.
“This is a genuine gesture. I hope Pep accepts that my hope is that we can start with a clean page.”
Finally, Seluk concluded by affirming that he hopes Guardiola brings Toure back in contention while also promising that he will never again speak ill of him to the media.
“Of course, I hope Pep takes the decision to bring Yaya back into his squad. But even if he doesn’t, I can assure him that I am not going to speak about him anymore in the media.
“I have sent this message because Pep hasn’t returned my calls.”
Yaya Toure might not be featuring at all under Guardiola, but the Citizens have still done well.They are fresh off from a 3-1 win against Barcelona in the Champions League and are the current leaders in the Premier League.
