Yaya Toure’s agent, Dimitri Seluk, has refused to back down in his war of words with Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola and claims he treats his players “like dogs”.
Guardiola this week stated that he would not pick Toure again, except he apologizes to the club and his team-mates over Seluk’s earlier comment.
But the Ukrainian fired back, telling Guardiola that he has no right to tell him what he can and cannot say .
Seluk has now told the BBC’s World Football Podcast: “Pep Guardiola – he thinks only about himself. He thinks he is already God.
“He won with Barcelona many titles but Yaya also won the same titles with Barcelona. Pep thinks now he has won everything and he can do what he wants.
“For me, very strange things [have happened] in Manchester City because Yaya played with them many years, [Joe] Hart played with them many years, I don’t know, [Vincent] Kompany played many years, and [in] comes a new coach and says, ‘Okay, these players out like dogs.”‘
Toure is in the final year of his City contract and would be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with another club in January.
“I am sure in two months we will have many offers. I already have a few offers for Yaya,” Seluk added.
“He can play five or six years without any problem. I am sure some clubs in England, in France, in Italy, in Spain will want him.
“Already [clubs in] United States, China invite Yaya but I think Yaya will play in Europe more years.”
