Yaya Toure's relationship this season with City was that of a rose, simply beautiful, but it appears the thorns have grown. Toure is supposedly unhappy according to his agent, Dimitry Seluk, claiming the Ivorian is unhappy with how he was treated by Manchester City on his birthday.
All the speculation stemmed from Toure's agent's interview to The Sun, claiming the his client was 'So upset he's thinking of leaving' after City supposedly didn't wish him a happy 31st birthday last week. Yaya Toure looked to quell speculation of being unhappy a few days after the interview was published by joking on twitter the birthday card from City had 'just arrived' and 'Must have got lost in the post. Haha.'
The Ivorian then suggested his agent's words were not reflecting his view and attitude, tweeting with his account @Toure_yaya42 'Jokes aside. Please do not take words that do not come out of MY mouth seriously. Judge my commitment to @MCFC by my performances.'
The top scorer for Manchester City in the Premier League though has now made a U-Turn on his comments, back tracking and seamlessly agreeing with his agent's words by tweeting 'Everything Dimitry said is true . He speaks for me . I will give an interview after world cup to explain'.
If Yaya Toure was to leave City next season it would leave a black hole in the midfield, as he was instrumental to City winning the title last season, and is a fan favourite at the Etihad. Although the midfielder's agent has stated Toure wasn't recognized on his birthday, Manchester City's YouTube channel uploaded a video last week featuring the players and staff singing to the big man, adding more confusion to this tale that has arisen from nothing.
