The agent of Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure has pleaded for new Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola to give his client a chance to play.
Toure has reportedly been left out of Man City’s squad for their UEFA Champions League playoff first leg clash against Romania’s Steaua Bucharest on Tuesday night.
The Elephants player also missed City’s 2-1 win over Sunderland in the opening round of the Premier League this past weekend.
Toure’s agent, Dmitri Seluk, believes that the West African can prove he is good enough to feature in Guardiola’s plans, but needs to be given the chance to show what he can do.
“Pep is the best manager in the world and I just hope he gives Yaya the chance to prove he is still good enough for City,” Seluk told SSN.
“Yaya is the perfect professional and he will do his job. City fans know he will do his best.
“He has not been included against Sunderland or Bucharest, but that’s okay. Guardiola has to learn all about the players he has available.”
