Dad makes Pep plea over Man City outcast Yaya

The father of Yaya Toure has urged Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola to give his son a new chance.

The Ivorian midfielder, 33, has been exiled at Manchester City after an on-going row with agent Dimitri Seluk.

Dad Mory told The Sun: “I'm worried about him. It's a problem. We ask Guardiola to come down to earth. He's the boss. I ask him for forgiveness, to let my son do his work."

Speaking from his home in the Ivory Coast, Mory added: “Yaya loves the club a lot, he's a good player for the team. He has the morale to play.

“I can't speak in his place. I think he'll stay. He's intelligent. He'll make a good choice after."
