Guardiola: I will never coach Barcelona again

1528700779_4d95a

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has denied Yaya Toure's claim that he didn't pick the Ivorian at Barcelona due to the colour of his skin.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has urged Barcelona fans to appreciate the achievements of Ernesto Valverde this season.

Guardiola has now responded to the comments from his former player, telling Catalan television station TV3 in quotes reported by the Spanish press: "It's a lie and he knows it".

Speaking earlier this week, 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".

"But when you realise that he has problems with Africans, wherever he goes, I ask myself questions".

'We were together two years and it is only now when he says it. Maybe we Africans are not always treated by some in the same way as others. "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".

"He [Guardiola] insists he has no problems with black players, because he is too intelligent to be caught out", the 35-year-old said. "He never told me face-to-face".

"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.

Guardiola has since come out to hit back at Toure's claims.

The midfielder had to wait until City's final home game of the season against Brighton for his first start of the season.
