The famous Ivorian has recently confirmed his plans of becoming a coach.
We expect the 37-year-old to replicate some of Guardiola's well-known methods – let us name at least some of them.
1. Being creative
For the vast majority of Cules, Pep Guardiola is a genius. Being a Pep disciple doesn't necessarily mean duplicating his tactical ideas, but it's definitely not about playing some bare-bones football.
If Yaya Toure wants to be one of a kind, he'll need to use all the football knowledge he has got to succeed.
2. Trusting young players
No extra words needed here. If not for Pep Guardiola's arrival, the La Masia wouldn't have been as famous as it once was. This is one of Pep's biggest achievements at Barca which is as remarkable as winning trophies.
3. Communicating a lot
"I want to be out on the grass, interacting with other people, exchanging ideas. I've been very lucky that Chris Ramsey has given me the opportunity to do that at Queens Park Rangers. I've been able to lead coaching sessions with the younger age groups," Yaya Toure has told The Coaches' Voice.
It's hard to imagine Yaya being as active on the sidelines as Pep, yet it's nice to see that the Ivorian enjoys talking to his mentees a lot – this is what makes Guardiola different from many other managers.
4. Seeking perfection
"Guardiola is a man who questions everything in his search for perfection; he realises the search is impossible but it is the search that drives him on," Pep's biographer and the author of Pep Confidential book Marti Perarnau wrote.
If you're not trying to get better on and off the pitch, if you don't experiment to improve things, then you're unlikely to succeed in Pep's vision.
5. Always searching for new challenges
Unlike many other coaches, Guardiola knew when it was the right time to go. He also knew how to leave in style – for example by leaving Barca with a quality successor like Tito Vilanova who eventually led the Catalans to a glorious 100-point La Liga campaign.
After leaving Camp Nou, Guardiola has managed to gain much experience in Germany and England, and it's quite possible that he'll look for a new challenge as soon as his deal with Manchester City expires.
