Yaya Toure names his Dream XI, no place for Manchester City players
Toure picked nine players from La Liga but none from Premier League
Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has named his Dream XI and surprisingly none of his current team-mates make the cut. Furthermore, the Ivorian has failed to name even one player from the Barclay’s Premier League despite plying his trade in England.
Toure, who missed out on the first leg Champions League round-of-sixteen tie against Barcelona with a suspension, is a probable starter against his ex-club as his team looks to overturn a 2-1 deficit at the Camp Nou. The Ivorian has picked as much as five of his former team to play in his ultimate team.
While Toure also included four from Barca’s arch-rivals Real Madrid, the 31-year-old’s current team-mates at City like Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and Pablo Zabaleta have been promptly left out.
There were no restrictions when it came to choosing his side, making his decision to exclude his current team-mates even more bizarre.
So who makes it to Yaya’s final dream team? Here’s the list.
Iker Casillas (Real Madrid) (GK)
Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund)
Gerard Pique (Barcelona)
Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)
Dani Alves (Barcelona)
Bastian Schweinsteiger (Bayern Munich)
James Rodriguez (Real Madrid)
Andres Iniesta (Barcelona)
Lionel Messi (Barcelona)
Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)
Here’s how Toure’s Dream XI looks like on paper.
