Yaya Toure has had enough sitting down on the bench, and has officially apologized on behalf of his agent, Dimitri Seluk.
Toure was excluded from Manchester City’s Champions League squad, forcing his agent to attack manager Pep Guardiola and calling the entire situation a “humiliation.”
Guardiola refused to pick Toure ever since, and promised not to ever pick him again unless Seluk apologized.
The legendary Ivorian midfielder has now come out to apologize to the team in hopes of salvaging the situation. He wrote in a statement on is Facebook page:
“I wish to apologise – on behalf of myself and those who represent me – to the management team and all those working at the club for the misunderstandings from the past.
“Those statements do not represent my views on the club or the people who work there.
“I have nothing but respect for Manchester City and only wish the best for the football club.
“I am immensely proud to have played a part in the club’s history and want to help City succeed further. I live to play football and entertain the fans.
“On that note, I would like to thank all of the fans for their messages through this difficult period. This means a great deal to me and my family.”
