Yaya Toure reveals friendly contact with Jurgen Klopp but not Pep Guardiola

Manchester City legend Yaya Toure has revealed that he regularly texts Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and is on friendly terms with the German, but he doesn’t even have Pep Guardiola’s phone number.

Toure was an integral part of Guardiola’s Barcelona side that won a historic treble in the 2008/09 season, while the duo were reunited at Man City in 2016.

However, the Catalan coach didn’t always favour the Ivorian and the two have a frosty relationship, with Toure claiming that Guardiola had ‘problems with Africans’ four years ago.

Toure has now admitted in an interview with The Times that he has since written to Guardiola to apologise, but has not heard back from him.

“I put that in the past and put it down to the Covid situation,” Toure said. “I wish to see him. I will be delighted. I need to talk to people who have a passion for football. I haven’t been in touch with him because I don’t have his number.”
