The 34-year-old was crucial to Manchester City’s emergence as a powerhouse of the Premier League.
“We had that to maintain our level all the season, try to break the record, maintain our intensity, 97 points, a lot of goals and wins, that’s a effect of the season we’ve done”.
Toure was part of the all-conquering Barcelona squad that won the domestic league and cup double and beat Manchester United in the Champions League final in 2009.
“I agree that to be considered one of the best, you have to win more”, Guardiola said.
Belgium’s Kevin De Bruyne paid tribute to his Man City teammate after their title celebrations on Sunday afternoon. I said I am going to show you the way. He lives only a short time from here, and he’s loved, from what I felt today in the crowd, and the people in locker room now.
“Now it’s one more game, we’ll try for 100 points and finish this nearly flawless season”. To come to City, to put United in the shadow, although that was always going to be hard.
Guardiola has made his home in Manchester City centre and has become a prominent figure in the area in his near two years in residence.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho expects his players to raise their game when they return to action for the first time since the news of Sir Alex Ferguson having an emergency operation on a brain haemorrhage.
Toure fluffed the chance to mark his final home appearance with a goal by lofting a tame effort straight to Ryan, though it took little away from his final goodbye to the Etihad Stadium crowd in the 86th minute. Great. City. No. I had been at successful clubs.
Departing Manchester City legend Yaya Toure, who has not always had it easy in England, has now compared Paul Pogba’s situation at Manchester United to his own struggles, before making a big prediction about the Frenchman’s future.

Tellingly, he was the only player at City to earn a contract extension at the end of last season, although he spent much of this season as an understudy to midfield anchorman Fernandinho and those rampaging runs from midfield were barely seen.
