Man City hero Yaya Toure: This Man Utd player my toughest opponent

Manchester City hero Yaya Toure has declared Nemanja Matic as the best player he faced.

Toure clashed with Matic when the Serb was with both Chelsea and Manchester United.

Speaking to The Times, Toure said: "Nemanja Matic was complicated. He's not quick but he's so strong, clever.

"All the rest of the opponents, because I always looked at them carefully before games, I get their weakness."

Toure is leaving Chinese side Qingdao Huanghai after helping to promotion to the Super League last season.
