"The football players make the clubs bigger," said Guardiola. "He has helped this club take a step forward.
"Hopefully we can play a good game, tomorrow we are going to play for Yaya.
"I am not going to judge Yaya for what happened this season, maybe I was wrong in my decision, I don't know.
"He has a huge personality, he doesn't feel the pressure. He loves to play football. I took the decision on what I saw on the training ground.
"Nothing changes about my opinion of him. We don't have complaints about what happened this season.
"Hopefully he will keep playing well and comeback maybe here or some other place.
"I think he still has the desire to play. My advice is he has to continue."
