Yaya Toure’s remarks about Manchester City’s Champions League chances have sparked wild celebrations from Manchester City fans City’s near-miss in Europe’s most prestigious interclub competition has been attributed to a curse inspired by Pep Guardiola’s unfair treatment of Yaya Toure in the 2017/2018 season.
The Cityzens faced a heartbreaking exit at the hands of eventual winners Real Madrid when they threw away a two-nil aggregate lead to lose 6-5 after extra time in last seasons UEFA Champions League Semi finals.
Manchester City fans have taken to social media to celebrate the lifting of the supposed ‘Champions League curse’ placed on Pep Guardiola and the club by Yaya Toure.
Yaya Toure’s agent, stressed that Guardiola’s decision to not count his client as a starting XI in the midfielder’s final season with Manchester City would invoke an African curse on the celebrated Spanish trainer.
Although Pep Guardiola had won the UEFA Champions league title on two occasions with Barcelona but has struggled to win the competition since he left the catalans giants.
But it appears the player in question has lifted the supposed curse during this season’s Champions League draw when the Manchester City legend participated in the process.
Yaya Toure said:
Every year they have a chance, and this year they’re going to have a chance. They can get what they need. It’s not going to be easy for them, but I wish them good luck.”
