Amongst a few other players, Yaya Toure, Manchester City's striker and Sadio Mane has been listed by the BBC for the African Footballer of the Year Award.

Mane who plays for Liverpool in forward position is said to be an expected name on the list, having scored about six goals for the Reds from 11 games since moving down from Southampton in a move that has been described as a "big money move."


Dimitri Seluk, the agent in charge of Manchester City’s star midfielder, Yaya Toure is of the opinion that his client has no lingering rift between him and his manager at City, Pep Guardiola.

So far, since the beginning of this season, Toure has featured only in one game under Guardiola, who was formerly Bayern Munich’s head coach. This apart, the midfielder was left out of the Champions League group stage squad and might likely not feature in the Wednesday 19th October, 2016 game against Benfica.

No Problems between Guardiola and Yaya Touré, says Agent

Yaya Touré has not featured in the Manchester City team for the last three weeks after his agent, Dmitri Seluk, was involved in a problem with Pep Guardiola.

Touré was never really amongst the favour when Guardiola was the manager at Barcelona. Seluk has been consistently involved in a war of words with either City or the manager has over the last few years.Touré has been reportedly contemplating the possibility of moving to either Italy or other major leagues rather than stay at the Etihad stadium where his importance has diminished quite considerably.

Will the real Man Utd please Stand Up!

It was a spell of eight days that threatened to cast a rather gloomy cloud over Jose Mourinho’ short tenure in charge of Manchester United:

Saturday September 10; a 1-2 defeat to their arch rivals across the city.

Thursday September 15; another defeat, this time 0-1 to Feyenoord in the Europa League.

Sunday September 18; the week from hell completed by a 1-3 reverse at the hands of Watford.

Yaya Toure is struggling to get playing time under Guardiola

Ever since Yaya Toure joined Manchester City back on July of 2010 and the African midfielder has managed to become a pivotal figure for the Premier League who has helped the English club in winning 2 domestic league titles, 1 FA Cup, 1 FA Community Shield and 2 Football League Cups.

Yaya Toure has consistently been making over 28 appearances in every single season at the Etihad Stadium but things has taken a huge turn as Pep Guardiola does not appear to have the midfielder in his plans.
