Yaya Toure explains why he left Barcelona

The outspoken midfielder blames his exit on Pep Guardiola.

"Whenever I asked him something, he always gave strange answers," Toure told ONA FM shortly after leaving Barca in 2010. "He pretty much ignored me until City's offer came in. That's why I eventually opted to leave. I didn't speak to Guardiola for a year.

"If he had talked to me, I would have stayed at Barcelona. I did not want to go and wanted to end my career at Barcelona. However, he had no faith in me."

Toure had a productive three-year-long stint at Camp Nou, including two years under Pep. In 2008-09, he helped the team win their first modern-era triple. 

Ironically, the two men crossed paths again at Manchester City, and that did not go well either. One of the club’s leaders, Toure again clashed with the manager, leaving in 2018 and accusing Pep of a bias against African players.
