Yaya Toure: ‘We were unfortunate to lose against Juventus’

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has claimed that his side were unlucky to lose 1-0 to Juventus in their Champions League clash. Mario Mandzukic scored the only goal of the match in the 18th minute to guide his side to the three points, which secured their place in the knockout stage of the competition.


Toure believes that his side did enough to earn at least a point from the fixture due to the chances their spurned, although Joe Hart was called into action several times in the contest at Juventus Stadium.

He is quoted as saying by BBC Sport: “Joe Hart played very well, he made some big saves but we had chances too. We were not clinical enough. “We miss injured players, we were a little bit unlucky to be honest with you.” City dropped behind Juve into second place in Group D, but have already qualified for the next round of the Champions League.
