Toure Lashes Out At Pep

Yaya Toure has spoken scathingly about Man City manager Pep Guardiola in an interview for France Football. Toure said of Pep: "I do not know why but I have the impression that he was jealous, he took me for a rival. As if I made him a little shade. He was cruel to me. I came to wonder if it was not because of my colour. I am not the first to talk about these differences in treatment. In Barca, some have also asked the question. When we realise he often has problems with Africans wherever he goes, I ask myself questions. I want to be the one who breaks the myth of Guardiola."
