Yaya Toure- He Wants War, We Will Give Him

Yaya Toure’s agent replies Pep Guardiola: ‘He wants war, we will give him’

Yaya Toure’s outspoken agent Dimitri Seluk has unleashed fire and brimstones at Manchester City boss hours after he vowed the Ivorian international will remain sidelined if he doesn’t
apologize over comments he made earlier in the month.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss had said few hours ago he would continue keeping Toure sidelined if he doesn’t make amends over comments made by his agent after he wasn’t included in the team list for the UEFA Champions League group stage.

Seluk has however given a swift reply by warning: “If Pep Guardiola wants a war, then he can have one.”

Seluk, the Barcelona-based Russian who has looked after Toure’s career since he was a teenager, once again started shooting from the lip after Guardiola threatened to leave the
Ivory Coast international on the sidelines.

The Spaniard wants an apology from his adviser for an interview he did with Sunday Mirror Sport earlier this month.

Seluk had accused the City boss of being disrespectful to Toure after leaving him out of his Champions League squad.

And he insisted that Guardiola should “have the balls” to apologise to the 33-year-old if he failed to make City European champions this season.

Guardiola responded on Tuesday by telling Toure that he will won’t play for City again unless Seluk issues a personal apology.

But, in an exclusive interview with Mirror Sport, Seluk hit back with another scathing attack on the Catalan.

Seluk said: “If Pep Guardiola wants a war, then he can have one.

“Pep didn’t like my opinion? But what does he expect me to say when he does this to Yaya?

“Yaya is a player who has made history for Manchester City.

“He has won the Premier League twice, he has won the FA Cup, he has won the League Cup twice and he helped them reach the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time.

“I spoke out because I felt that Pep was being vindictive to Yaya.

“Unfortunately for Pep, we live in a world where you have the right to free speech.

“He has reacted to what I have said about him by punishing Yaya again. But I’m not surprised.”

Seluk added: “Pep doesn’t want players with personality. He only wants players who are scared of him and will do what he says.

“The first thing he did when he arrived at City was to pick a fight with Yaya and Joe Hart, two of the club’s biggest players.

“Hart is England’s goalkeeper; Yaya has won the African Footballer of the Year four times

“They have both been big personalities in the dressing room at City and Guardiola doesn’t like that.

“When you first go into someone’s house then you should treat them with respect. You don’t go into someone’s house and ask them to leave.

“He was the same at Barcelona.

“He forced Samuel Eto’o to leave the club. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a player who cost £57million, was sold for just £18million.

“It has to always be about Pep Guardiola, no-one else.”

Seluk seemed to rule out the possibility of issuing an apology to Guardiola.

He said: “Will I apologise? Well, I have learned that you must never say never.

“But will Pep apologise to Yaya? Will he apologise to Joe Hart or Manuel Pellegrini?

“Look what Guardiola did to Pellegrini. He took his job when he was still fighting for titles.

“Colleagues should have respect for each other, especially in England where it is important to act like a gentleman.”
