Yaya Toure unsure about Manchester City future
London, Jan 17 (IANS): Yaya Toure has again thrown his future into doubt by claiming he doesn't know if he will still be a Manchester City player next season.But, manager Manuel Pellegrini was quick to dismiss talk of a transfer at a press conference Friday, insisting the 31-year-old was fully committed to the club, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Pelegrini said, "That's a big question and that's an easy question as well, and you have an easy answer... we'll see.” He added, "I don't know (if I'll stay). I'm at City. City is a great club where I've achieved lots of things."
The current African Player of the Year joined the Premier League champions from Barcelona back in 2010 and has enjoyed considerable success at the Etihad Stadium. However, over the last year the relationship between player and club has appeared strained.
Toure endured a difficult year off the pitch, after his brother Ibrahim tragically died and the Ivorian said that, despite his success with the club, 2014 had been "a horrible year".
