Humble Pie: Yaya Toure Apologises to Pep Guardiola
Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure has apologized to the club for his statements and those of his agent, Dimitiri Seluk against manager Pep Guardiola.
Guardiola had kept Toure out of action mainly because of those utterances spoken on his behalf by agent Dimitri Seluk. He had insisted on an apology from the Ivorian and his agent.
Toure has finally tendered an apology to the club and all others involved.
Toure said, “I wish to apologise – on behalf of myself and those who represent me – to the management team and all those working at the club for the misunderstandings from the past.”
“Those statements do not represent my views on the clubor the people who work there.
“I have nothing but respect for Manchester City and only wish the best for the football club.
“I am immensely proud to have played a part in the club’s history and want to help City succeed further. I live to play football and entertain the fans.
“On that note, I would like to thank all of the fans for their messages through this difficult period. This means a great deal to me and my family.”
Toure has featured only once for Manchester City this season.
