Yaya Toure’s agent warns Man City's Pep Guardiola of ‘African curse’

Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk has now echoed his client's words, and suggested that "African shamans" - a term that can be construed to mean witch doctors or sangomas - will prevent Guardiola from lifting the UEFA Champions League in the future.

Toure established himself as one of the club's all-time greats during his eight-year spell with City but found his playing time limited under Guardiola.

Toure has previously stated he wants to stay in the Premier League, and he clearly has a desire to prove Guardiola wrong.

"To proving to the Manchester City fans that Yaya is not finished with football". In fact, Pellegrini reached the Champions League semi-final, and Guardiola hasn't done that yet.

"He was cruel to me".

Toure, 35, scored 20 goals in the 2013 season and made at least 37 appearances in each of his first six seasons with City.

In an interview given to France Football, Toure said that he wanted to "break the myth" about Guardiola, who he also played under while at Barcelona.

"Maybe we Africans are not always treated by some in the same way as others. when we notice that he often has problems with Africans, wherever he is in the past, I'm wondering".

"Other players will never say so in public, but some have told me they finish by detesting him because he is manipulative and plays a lot of mind games". "It'll be like an African curse on him".

"What has Guardiola achieved?" Later, though, the two parties called a truce, and Toure even signed a one-year contract extension.

"God sees everything. As a man who acted with Yaya, the legend of the club, which under different pretexts did not give the opportunity to go on the field", he said, as quoted by Manchester Evening News. We are not so interested in money, as perhaps it seemed to many.

This is a stunning claim by Seluk as the Mirror says Toure was on £220,000-a-week at City so it would be a monumental wage cut if he was seriously willing to accept an incentivised deal worth just £1 basic per week.

"And a top player with leadership qualities could never be a bad addition to a team, especially when he doesn't require payment". Only when you buy all the best players in the world, it's much easier than, for example, in the case of (Claudio) Ranieri, who won the Premier League with Leicester'.
