Man City great Yaya Toure: David Silva gets statue? What about me?

Manchester City great Yaya Toure is unhappy with plans for David Silva to have a statue erected for him at Etihad stadium.

The pair played together for eight years at the Etihad, before Toure's 2018 departure.

While Toure, 37, was quick to stress that he is delighted for his former team-mate, he appeared to question the decision not to also award him one.

The legendary midfielder said: "The statue for Silva, I am very delighted, very happy. They gave him that.

"For me, it's up to the club – I have nothing much to say about that. They can decide what they want.

"Is it odd though? Yeah. But I can do nothing about it because it is up to the club. The fans know better."
