Recommended Posts

Yaya Toure appears to be approaching the end of his time at Manchester City after eight rather eventful years.

How he be remembered in your eyes?

Beast, and a key part of their early titles. Will never forget a match when City were down Mancini subbed off Silva and pushed Yaya forward. The commentator gave a shitload of stick but Toure won it for them. Top player. pity so injury prone

We'll remember him by Mancini being the first manager to figure out he wasn't a fucking CB or DM.

Brilliant player, had a couple of sublime seasons and deserves his place in history. Also did a good job at Barcelona, wasn't fancied much as a midfielder by Guardiola but did a fantastic job at centre back in the Champions League final in 2009. That's a great player.

Absolute tank of a player and has come up with some beautiful, and important, goals over the years. 

The left footed shot against Arsenal stands out. Caressed in to the corner. Lovely.

That sounds very homoerotic.

Legend, in his prime he used to just run through teams, it was like he'd gate crashed an under 7's game at times xD   ...awesome free kick taker, scorer of one of the greatest goals ever scored at Wembley & birthday cake gates!

He's been a fantastic player for them, so I'm sure he'll be remembered very fondly by their fans.

Not even a City fan but I'll never forget the two late goals against Newcastle that he scored which were just as instrumental in securing that first title as Crystanbul and Agueroooooooo.

Edit: I'm retarded. Crystanbul was a different season.

Pep Guardiola has finally brought down the curtain on Yaya Touré’s Manchester City career and guaranteed the midfielder a memorable farewell in front of his home crowd next week.

Touré, who turns 35 at the end of the season, had an uncomfortable start to his time under Guardiola, following controversial comments by his agent Dimitri Seluk that were critical of the manager.

But Touré worked his way back into Guardiola’s first-team squad last season and, while he has been limited to nine substitute appearances in the Premier League in 2017-18, he will collect his third Premier League title when City are handed the trophy after Sunday's meeting with Huddersfield.

"He will not stay after this season,” said Guardiola. “The Brighton game we will give him what he deserves. One of the most beautiful farewells a player can receive.

“All the game will we be focused on winning the game against Brighton for Yaya, and we are going to try to do it for him.”

Touré’s spell with City, since signing from Barcelona for £24 million in July 2010, has coincided with the club’s rise to prominence, backed by the Abu Dhabi royal family although Guardiola insists that his influence extends well beyond the football pitch.

 

I hope he gets a leaving cake!

They will probably forget again... only this time he won't be able to throw in any threats about leaving...

Yaya Toure is not ruling out a move to Manchester United. Anything for that birthday cake.

I thought about that too... Nobody does birthday cakes like United.  World renowned! xD

He hasn't got anything to offer Arsenal these days at least not in terms of what Arsenal require. Infact I don't think he's at the level required by any English club and the intensity we have in this league.

No disrespect to them as they are by rights a big club, but if he did have a club in England after him I can't imagine him deciding to opt for the Greek league.
