Guardiola treats players like dogs – agent

first_imgYaya Toure’s agent Dimitri Seluk accused Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola as treating his players “like dogs”, in the latest chapter of his public issue with the high-profile coach.Guardiola’s ultimatum that Toure apologise on behalf of his agent before he is returned to the squad has not silenced Seluk, whose latest attacks adds further doubt to the Ivory Coast’s star’s future at the club.”Pep Guardiola – he thinks only about himself. He thinks he is already God,” Seluk told BBC. “He won with Barcelona many titles but Yaya also won the same titles with Barcelona. Pep thinks now he has won everything and he can do what he wants.””For me, very strange things (have happened) in Manchester City because Yaya played with them many years, (Joe) Hart played with them many years, I don’t know, (Vincent) Kompany played many years, and (in) comes a new coach and says, ‘Okay, these players out like dogs’.”Seluk added that Guardiola has no right to tell him what he can and cannot say.”Everybody can speak what they want. We are in an open country. I was born in Russia, there was Communist party. I know when it is not possible to say anything, but I am sorry, I am now in Europe, in England,” Seluk said.”Guardiola, if he wants to live in a country where it is not possible to say anything, he must change country.”Toure, 33, is in the final year of his contract with Manchester City and would be entitled to sign a pre-contract agreement with another club in January.”I am sure in two months we will have many offers. I already have a few offers for Yaya. He can play five or six years without any problem. I am sure some clubs in England, in France, in Italy, in Spain will want him,” he noted.”Already (clubs in) United States, China invite Yaya but I think Yaya will play in Europe more years.”last_img read more
