Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola denies Yaya Toure claims

Toure is leaving Manchester City this summer when his contract expires, and he launched a tirade against his former manager last week, suggesting Guardiola has issues with African players.

'But when you realise that he has problems with Africans, wherever he goes, I ask myself questions.

"I am not the first to talk about these differences in treatment". Maybe it's the case that we Africans aren't always treated by certain people in the same way that they treat others. "When you see the problems [Pep] has often had with African players, everywhere he has been, I ask myself questions".

City and Guardiola initially declined to comment on the quotes, but the latter has now made it clear he totally refutes Toure's comments.

But human rights organizations and the ICC's chief prosecutors provided enough evidence showing Bemba's guilt. Appeal judges also said he had been "erroneously" convicted for specific criminal acts.

Guardiola did not acknowledge Toure's comments at a golf tournament in Spain on Tuesday, but did respond in an interview with TV3 on Saturday.

Toure previously spent two years playing under Guardiola at Barcelona, too, before he was sold to City by the Catalan coach in 2010.

When the subject was brought up, Guardiola was reserved in his assessment, telling This Is Premier League: "I would say we made the best year in the Premier League ever". Similar success followed at Bayern Munich before the 47-year-old guided Manchester City to Premier League and EFL Cup glory this term, but his time on the field and in the dugout for Barca means Guardiola remains inextricably linked to his boyhood club. (He had) 365 and 365 (days) to tell me (his feelings).
