The Ivorian had made serious allegations against the star coach – and now responded with clear words.
pep Guardiola has responded to the racist allegations of his former player Yaya Touré and denied the allegations vehemently: “This is a lie,” the Spaniard said in an interview with the Catalan “TV3”, “and he knows that too.” The 47-year-old continued, “We’ve been in a team for two years and only now is he talking about that.” Touré had in his guesses “never said.”
Touré’s consultant also intervened
The midfielder leaves ManCity this summer and made headlines with his comments. He wonders “if it’s not my skin color” that he played only 17 competitive matches in 2017/18 after being a high achiever a year ago, Touré said, adding that he was not the first to ask himself that question ,
Touré’s advisor even announced that Touré was ready to play for the symbolic salary of one euro for a direct Guardiola rival – to pay back his ex-coach’s troubles.
