⚽ Pep: Man City star Yaya Toure could play where he wants! ⚽

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stated that Yaya Toure can still play for a top club if he were to leave the Etihad Stadium.

Toure has managed to play a crucial role for City since being brought back into the fold by Guardiola but the Ivorian’s long-term future at the Etihad remains in doubt as his contract with the club is set to expire at the end of the season.

Guardiola has failed to confirm whether or not Toure will be staying put at City beyond the end of the current campaign but has insisted that the 33-year-old still has enough quality to play for a big club if his time in Manchester were to come to an end.

Guardiola said: “He can play for big, big clubs. He can play wherever he wants.

“He has a big personality and this season, he is helping me by playing top, top football.

“He will play football until he decides because he loves playing. He enjoys playing and loves playing games. When that happens, he will decide.

“The focus now needs to be on winning games and competitions. We will talk about everything else at the end of the season.”
