PEP GUARDIOLA Threatens YAYA TOURE'S Future At Man City

Manchester City's manager, Pep Guardiola says Yaya Toure will not feature for Manchester City until he recieves an apology for Dimtri Seluk's recent outburst in the media.

Guardiola left Toure out of his Champions League squad for this season and City were keen to move the ivorian on if they cold find a willing buyer in the summer transfer window.

Toure's agent, Saluk, told the press a day after his[Toure] exclusion from the squad that "This decision humiliated my client, if City don't win the Champions League then I hope that Pep has got the balls to say that he was wrong to humiliate a great player like Yaya."

 Guardiola, however, has not taken kindly the comments, and said ahead of City's League cup clash with Swansea City that Toure will play no part, and that he can expect to be left out until Toure camp reaches out to the City boss and his players to make amends.

Guardiola began his press conference by taking questions on the availability of Toure and Vincent Kompany for Wednesday's EFL game at Swansea, and it was clear that the Ivorian's situation was not likely any of his team-mates.

He said "Kompany has a chance, Yaya NO. HE IS NOT IN THE TEAM"
Guardiola was later asked about the decision to exclude Toure, and he simply replied: "It depends on Dmitri Seluk"

Guardiola futhermore said " It was difficult for me to put him[Toure] out in the Champions League. So difficult. I know him, I know he's good, good guy, but it was difficult for me as well to put Alexis Garcia out, [they are] the only two players that are out, because the list is the list.

"But the day after his[Toure] agent spoke. In that moment YAYA IS OUT. Unless Mr Dmitri Seluk comes back in the press conference, or his friends in the media, [until] he has the courage to call me, or go to the media and say he apologises to Manchester City, the first one, the second on is his team-mates and after the trainer.

"When that happens Yaya will be part of the group and he will have the same chance to play all the games. Because i cannot accept, as a coach, every agent when his player doesn't play goes to the media and speak and speak and speak.

"I know how Dmitri Seluk loves Yaya Toure, if he loves me, show me and apologise to Manchester City what he did in the media. I cannot imagine in my period when I was a football player, my manager going to the media and speaking against Johan Cruyff, about this and bout that.

"Maybe it's a new era now, the new period changing, but I'm an old guy. I am old generation, and old generation agents have to make his players his job and trainers his job, and today the agents believe they are more than they are. If he has a problem call Txiki Begiristain, the club, and they can talk, until he doesn't speak, Yaya is not going to play."
