The agent of Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure, Dimitri Seluk has said his client has been humiliated after being omitted from manager Pep Guardiola’s Champions League squad.
The 33-year-old was left out of the Citizens’ Champions League squad, with UEFA rules dictating that clubs are allowed to name a maximum of 17 players who have not been trained in England at youth level.
As such, Guardiola was forced to make the tough decision of leaving out the vastly experienced Toure, much to the disappointment of agent Dimitri Seluk.
Seluk told the Sunday Mirror: “If he wins the Champions League for City this season then I will travel to England and I will say on television that Pep Guardiola is the best manager in the world.
“But if City don’t win the Champions League then I hope that Pep has got the balls to say that he was wrong to humiliate a great player like Yaya.
“This is Pep’s decision and we must respect it. Yaya is a professional and so he will do everything he is asked to do.”
Toure was linked with a move away from the club in the off-season, having previously been sold by Guardiola at Barcelona.
