Pep Guardiola responds to Yaya Toure accusations

Toure and Guardiola

Speaking to TV3 (h/t Fay), the City boss denied the suggestions made by the Ivory Coast worldwide.

Speaking to France Football magazine, Toure - who left City in May after eight seasons at club when his contract expired - slammed his former coach and accused him of racism.

Guardiola has since achieved success at Bayern Munich and City as he continues his quest to be the greatest coach in the world.

Guardiola says Toure "knows that I'm not racist" and did not raise the issue during their two years together at City.

'We were together two years and it is only now when he says it. (He had) 365 and 365 (days) to tell me (his feelings).

Toure played his final game for City late in the season against Brighton & Hove Albion and was given a tremendous send-off by the Etihad Stadium.

We're not quite sure why Toure made those comments but given the reaction from his former teammates and Guardiola himself, it seems they made more out of spite than any sort of evidence.

Pep "I had the time of my life at Barça".

Guardiola also ruled out running for the presidency at the Catalan club one day, something Gerard Pique's said he would like to do. "We won one Premier League".

"They were lies, and he knows it", he said.

"President? No, I am a coach and I am good at what I do, you can't be everything". It was a generation of brutal players and the best player in the world (Lionel Messi). "When I stop coaching, you will find me playing golf".

City have been touted by many fans as the best ever in the Premier League, given the fact they reached 100 points over the course of the season.
