Pep Guardiola has branded Yaya Toure a liar after he accused the manager of being “cruel to him” and having “problems with African players.”
Speaking earlier this week, Yaya Toure, who was released by City at the end of the season after spending eight years with the Premier League champions, lashed out at his ex-coach, saying that he wanted to “destroy the Guardiola myth.”
Guardiola did not acknowledge Toure’s comments at a golf tournament in Spain on Tuesday, but did respond in an interview with TV3 on Saturday.
“It’s a lie and he knows it,” Guardiola said. “We were together for two years and now this is when he says it. He never told me face-to-face.”
Toure previously spent two years playing under Guardiola at Barcelona, too, before he was sold to City by the Catalan coach in 2010.
In the interview with France Football, Toure said Guardiola “has often had problems with Africans wherever he has been” and suggested the City boss is “jealous” of him.
“He will never admit it but the day he fields a team with five Africans, non-naturalised, I promise that I will send him a cake.” he added.
