Kevin De Bruyne defends Pep Guardiola over Yaya Toure racism claims

Toure accused Pep of discriminating African footballers

Dimitri Seluk has also continued Toure's attack on Pep Guardiola, claiming Manchester City have lost the support of African fans as a result of the Catalan's treatment of the Ivory Coast worldwide.

In 2010, the former African footballer of the year joined Manchester City from Spanish club Barcelona in which he claimed Guardiola forced him out at the Nou Camp.

Toure was restricted to a bit-part role in his eighth and final season at City as Guardiola steered the club to dominant triumphs in the Premier League and EFL Cup.

The 35-year-old left the club after eight years last month following the expiration of his contract, and recently suggested that the reason behind his lack of playing time was down to his African descent.

Toure insists he can still play at the top-level and his agent Dimitry Seluk says the Ivory Coast midfielder will play for one of City's top-six rivals for £1 a week to prove Guardiola wrong.

"I want to be the one who breaks the Guardiola myth", the Ivorian said in an interview with France Football.

So it was a big "wake-up moment" when she arrived in Hollywood, which is infamous for its boisterous boys' clubs. But in the case of Cate Blanchett and Sarah Paulson's Tuesday morning Today Show interview, it was anything but.

You can expect many more millions to be invested on new arrivals as Pep looks to bring in major additions to strengthen all departments of his side - he is ambitious and so are his players.

"Yaya has many offers from different countries, where they are ready to pay a lot of money, but we chose to dedicate the next season to Guardiola", Selyuk told Russian outlet Sport24.

"We had the best season ever, so in the end the coach took the right decision to play with the team who played a lot".

"I believe that a player like Yaya would not reject Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool".

"This year the trainer probably thought [Yaya] wasn't doing enough, wasn't fit enough".

Yaya Toure's agent has claimed the midfielder is ready to play for another top six club for just £1 a week.
