Man City boss Guardiola hails Valverde Double triumph with Barcelona

Man City boss Guardiola hails Valverde Double triumph with Barcelona

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he does not agree with suggestions his 2017/18 team is the best-ever to have played in the Premier League. "Do you really think he could've been like that with Iniesta?"

The duo have worked together at City for the past two years, following a previous two year spell at Barcelona.

Pep Guardiola has dismissed Touré's claims as "lies. The quality of the human beings they are, how they connect with the rest of the staff, that is I would say the main secret, that counts a lot to me". I even started wondering to myself whether it was about my colour.

"I am not the first to talk about these differences in treatment".

Toure said "Pep brutally got rid of Bony", although the Ivorian's record since leaving City - four goals in 25 league appearances - hardly suggests Guardiola was mistaken. (He had) 365 and 365 (days) to tell me (his feelings).

Similar success followed at Bayern Munich before the 47-year-old guided Manchester City to Premier League and EFL Cup glory this term, but his time on the field and in the dugout for Barca means Guardiola remains inextricably linked to his boyhood club. Maybe it's the case that we Africans aren't always treated by certain people in the same way that they treat others.

"He insists he has no problems with black players, because he is too intelligent to be caught out", Toure had said.

"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.

Toure made his final appearance for City in a 3-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in May.
