When asked about Toure's comments on Spanish show TV3, Guardiola revealed what he really thought. "We were together two years and now is when he says it".

"It's a lie and he knows it", the Spaniard said when asked about Toure's comments.

The midfielder had to wait until City's final home game of the season against Brighton for his first start of the season.

Touré continued, citing his ethnicity as the prime factor behind Pep's treatment of him during their time together at Barcelona and Manchester City.

As relayed by Fay, Toure's agent, Dimitri Seluk, has backed the allegations made against Guardiola by his client. "He never told me face-to-face".

The suspension was supported by the other members of the group, including the US, Canada , Japan and four European nations. Senate, all frequent critics of the president, assailed his suggestion of readmitting Russian Federation to the group.

"He turned all Africa against himself, many African fans turned away from Manchester City", he said.

He said, "He knows that I'm not racist".

"When you see that he's had problems with Africans wherever he's been in the past, you wonder". He'll never admit it [not liking Africans].

Pep Guardiola has no intention of returning to Barcelona in the future as he does not believe that his previous success there can be replicated. It was a fantastic age where I was taking on the world and we took it on, with some incredible players, a young president, Joan Laporta, Txiki Begiristain and the best player in the world, Messi. "No, I am a coach and I am good at what I do, you can't be everything".

Speaking to France Football magazine, Toure - who left City in May after eight seasons at club when his contract expired - slammed his former coach and accused him of racism.
