Yaya Toure’s agent Dimitri Seluk has continued his attack on Pep Guardiola, accusing the Manchester City manager of treating players “like dogs”.
Guardiola this week said he would not pick midfielder Toure again unless he received an apology from Seluk for comments he made in the media.
But Seluk refused to back down after claiming Guardiola had humiliated Toure by leaving him out of City’s Champions League squad and a heated war of words developed.
With Toure’s City career now in limbo, Seluk remains entrenched in his position and has again criticised Guardiola.
The Ukrainian told the BBC’s World Football Podcast:
“Pep Guardiola – he thinks only about himself. He thinks he is already God.
“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’.”
