Yaya Toure recently told the French newspaper L’Equipe that despite all the success he’s had with Manchester City he wouldn’t call himself happy.
Toure lamented the way he’s been treated by British media from the start when he made the move to City.
“When I came to City, in 2010, I heard people say here that I would kill football.”
“Here, when it’s bad, they (British journalists) highlight the faults. When it’s good, they leave that in the dungeon.”
Since 2010 Yaya Toure has helped Manchester City to capture two Premier League Titles, an FA cup, and a Captial One Cup. Toure has had such a bad time in the professional football world that he plans on discouraging his kids from picking up the sport.
“I do not want them to have to go through everything that I have endured. It has hurt me,” added the midfielder.
“Studying for them, that’s what I told the missus.”
It doesn’t look like Toure’s mood is going to lift anytime soon as his only goal for the season against West Bromwich has been reviewed and is now being accredited to David Silva.
