Botafogo chief furious with Man City legend Yaya Toure: I'm DISGUSTED

Botafogo are fuming with Manchester City legend Yaya Toure.

Toure has been blasted by a club in Brazil after Botafogo's vice-president Ricardo Rotenberg claimed he had misled them in transfer talks.

Toure, it is claimed, had given Botafogo his word that he would sign for the club after talks over a deal.

However, it has now emerged that Toure has committed to join Vasco da Gama instead - if presidential candidate Leven Siano is elected as the club's president.

Rotenberg has taken aim at Toure, saying: “I'm disgusted. He's a guy who's word means nothing. He has an attitude but no character."

Toure left City in the summer of 2018 after 315 appearances and 82 goals.
