Toure not good enough for Man City’s Guardiola, just like Man Utd’s Ibrahimovic at Barcelona!

The agent of Yaya Toure suggests his client has not met the demands of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

The Ivory Coast veteran has been frozen out by the Spaniard who has opted to omit the midfielder from his Champions League squad.

It appears as though Toure's days at the Etihad Stadium are numbered which is a surprise to Seluk as perhaps Guardiola does not see the best in proven stars of the game.

"He is in very good shape, very good condition, I think he lost seven kilograms," he said.

"Maybe that's not good enough for Guardiola, but then Zlatan Ibrahimovic wasn't good enough for him (at Barcelona).

"In January we will see. It is three months to wait - no problem. Yaya is a very professional guy."
