Yaya Toure slams Guardiola for failing to win Champions League at Man City

Former Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure, has hit out at Pep Guardiola for failing to win the Champions League during his time at the club.

City were dumped out in the quarter-finals for the third straight year, after losing 3-1 to Lyon last week.

Toure, speaking with Football Daily, says their failure to perform in the competition was ‘strange’.

The ex-Ivory Coast international, who has endured a rocky relationship with Guardiola, believes the club hired the Spaniard in a bit to land the biggest trophy in European club competition.
