Pep Guardiola: I will never coach Barcelona again

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola and club legend Yaya Toure

A recent interview with France Football magazine saw Yaya Toure make claims that Pep Guardiola has a problem with footballers of African descent. Do you believe that Barcelona could have done that with (Andres) Iniesta?

The manager has worked with Toure for many years throughout their respective careers, and each has enjoyed prosperous moments during their time together.

"It's a lie and he knows it", Guardiola told TV3 in Spain.

As noted by Richard Fay of the Manchester Evening News, after leaving City this summer Toure has lashed out at Guardiola, saying he has an issue with African footballers. I even started wondering to myself whether it was about my colour. Maybe we Africans are not always treated by some in the same way as others. In Barca, some have also asked the question.

"We were together two years and it is only now when he says it. 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".

Guardiola initially remained silent last week in the aftermath of a series of damning accusations made by Toure and his agent, who insisted he wanted to "break the Guardiola myth" after moaning that his former boss had deliberately ruined his final season at the Etihad Stadium.

"He [Guardiola] insists he has no problems with black players, because he is too intelligent to be caught out, ' Toure claimed last week", Toure claimed. He'll never admit it (not liking Africans).

"When the day comes that he picks a team featuring five Africans - and not naturalised Africans - I promise I will send him a cake!" "He never told me face to face", he added.
