Yaya Toure Breaks Silence on Curse Placed on Pep Guardiola
Former Manchester City and Barcelona midfielder, Yaya Toure has spoken for the first time on the course placed on Pep Guardiola.
Yaya's former agent, Dimitri Sulek had always insisted in the past that he is the reason why Guardiola has not won the UCL since he last won it with Barcelona. He placed a curse on the Spaniard because of how he treated Yaya when he was at Barcelona and City, Guardiola was the manager on both occasions.
The Ivorian disassociated himself from the curse via his official Twitter account on Monday, May 8th, 2023. He dissociated himself from the agent and everything that concerns him.
My ex-agent is being quoted by the media about a 'curse'. Please don't associate me with this nonsense and lazy stereotypes about African curses. Media.. move on, please. This man does not represent me in any way. The amplification of these stereotypes is harmful. The message got through.
Manchester City have been close to winning the trophy in recent years the closest was in 2021 when they lost the final to Chelsea. However, the Cityzens must overcome Real Madrid m the semi-finals for a place in the final.
