Record-breaking Manchester City give Touré a fitting send-off

  • Leon Bailey has been in sparkling form for the majority of the Bundesliga season

Guardiola, talking ahead of City's final home game of the season against Brighton, remained relaxed about the situation, not least because club chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak, plus chief executive Ferran Soriano and director of football Txiki Begiristain are all personal friends.

DAILY POST reports that Yaya Toure will leave the Citizens after eight years at the club, having netted 59 times for his side.

"I'm not finishing in two weeks or one month-I have one more year". Silva, Aguero and many other big names followed him to the club, which had recently come under Abu Dhabi ownership.

'If there is ever going to be a legend at this club, it is going to be this man.

"You have to make more years to do that but one season we were better than all of them".

He also received a huge cheer when he picked out his winning goal against arch-rivals Manchester United in the 2011 FA Cup semi-final as his favourite moment at the club.

That was appropriate with Yaya Toure being handed the captain's armband as well as his first Premier League start of the season by boss Pep Guardiola to mark his farewell from the Etihad.

Guardiola, who also said he was "so happy" to hear Sir Alex Ferguson is out of intensive care, added: "I completely agree when people say to be considered one of the best or the best, we have to win more". "I loved the challenge". "I just want to say thank you to Yaya".

He said: "This was bad timing then the manager took me out!"

Guardiola, who sanctioned Toure's 2010 move to City while in charge of Barca, expects a fond farewell for the 34-year-old. Tellingly, he was the only player at City to earn a contract extension at the end of last season, although he spent much of this season as an understudy to midfield anchorman Fernandinho and those rampaging runs from midfield were barely seen. Now we are champions, even though the team are young.
