Toure concedes Man City not yet at Barcelona level

Manchester City ace Yaya Toure believes they still have some ground to make up on Barcelona.

The £200,000-a-week star admitted that despite the millions of Sheikh Mansour's backing, City are nowhere near his former club Barcelona.

He said: "Ha ha! Honestly I think we are far away. Barcelona are an amazing club with a fantastic squad.

"I think most of the best players in the world are already there - Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique, Dani Alves.

"They are a fantastic squad. To become like them, we have to work hard and we have to win some trophies. We will continue to work hard to become like them."
