Man City hero Toure admits trying to fix feud with Guardiola

Manchester City hero Yaya Toure admits he's tried to apologise to Pep Guardiola after accusing his old manager of racism.

Speaking to France Football after leaving City, he questioned his former boss's attitude towards Africans and stated in the interview: "It got to the point I asked myself if it was because of my colour. I am not the first. Other Barcelona players asked the question."

Toure, who is now looking to forge his own path into management, wrote to Guardiola to apologise for his public comments. However, he has revealed that his attempts to build bridges have never been acknowledged.

"I put that in the past and put it down to the covid situation," he told The Times in an interview when asked about the lack of communication from the City head coach.

"I wish to see him. I will be delighted. I need to talk to people who have a passion for football. I haven't been in touch with him because I don't have his number."
