​Man City boss drops Yaya Toure from Champions League squad

Man City boss drops Toure from Champions League squad

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has left midfielder Yaya Toure out of his 2016-17 Champions League squad.

Clubs can change three players after the group stage but Toure will not be able to play against Borussia Monchengladbach, Celtic and Barcelona.

The Ivory Coast international has only played once this season, in the second leg of the Champions League play-off against Steaua Bucharest, when City were already 5-0 up from the first game.

It was rumoured Toure might leave the club following Guardiola's arrival, with Inter Milan one of the clubs who were interested.

However, the player never had any desire to leave City and intends to see out his contract, which expires in 2017.
