Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has defended himself against Yaya Toure's accusation that he might have a problem with African players.

Guardiola says Toure "knows that I'm not racist" and did not raise the issue during their two years together at City.

Toure won three Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups during an eight-year spell at the Etihad.

The Ivorian made one Premier League start last season as City cruised to title glory under Guardiola.

The midfielder – who also played under Guardiola at Barcelona – suggested in an interview with France Football earlier this week that the City manager might have treated him less favourably because he is African.

Guardiola has responded to the comments from his former player, telling Televisio de Catalunya: “He knows that I'm not racist.

“Saying that ... what can we do?

"We have been together during two years. We have had two years, 365 + 365 (days) to say it – and we can talk.

“If he leaves and later he says that. 

"Don't mind, it is not worth (it)." (Sky Sports)
