In an interview with France Football magazine, Touré - who left City in May after eight seasons at the club - attacked his former manager who was also his coach at Barcelona.

And Dimitri Seluk, the midfielder's agent, has also hit out at Guardiola, revealing plans for 2018-19 that include making out-of-contract Toure available on a free for City's rivals, earning just £1 per week.

The Manchester City boss swapped his usual football for a round of golf and got stuck into the event at the PGA facilities of Caldes de Malavella, Girona.

He continued: "We had the best season ever, so in the end the coach took the right decision to play with the team who played a lot".

No fairy tale ending for Saxon Warrior at Epsom
Saxon Warrior , who had beaten Masar in the 2000 Guineas, had been the pre-event favourite to win the race. In terms of each-way value I think Masar is a fantastic price for Charlie Appleby.

Seluk said: "At a time when big sums are being paid, I officially declare that Yaya is ready to move as a free agent to any English club in the top six with a salary of £1 pound a week". In the last couple of years at the Etihad he was a peripheral figure, playing only 228 minutes in the Premier League last season.

Real Madrid, winners for the last three seasons, top the coefficient rankings followed by Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea, Juventus, Porto, Arsenal and Benfica.

City have declined to comment on Toure's views.

He fired a warning to Guardiola, by pin-pointing a possible blip on the number of African soccer lovers who would choose to support Manchester City. "When you don't play there's always something you try to find", the Belgium midfielder told BBC World Football.

If Mueller can not take either of those actions, then there is no need to put the president under oath to answer his questions.

This week has seen Pep Guardiola branded as a racist in a sensational interview given by Yaya Toure.

Seluk believes that will continue to be the case for the Catalan and that an African curse, seemingly as punishment for his treatment of Toure, will stop him being successful in the competition. But the day he picks a team with five Africans in it, I promise I will send him a cake! Other Barca players asked the question too.

"Once again: the act of Guardiola towards Pellegrini, who reached the Champions League semi-final that year, was nasty".

Toure started 22 league games under Guardiola in the 2016-17 season, and says he was asked to stay for another year, but then used sparingly.
