Guardiola: Yaya Toure is an exceptional player

Manchester City boss Josep Guardiola spoke about his players after the Arsenal match. City won 2-1 thanks to goals by Sane and Sterling.

“I apologize to Stones as he didn’t deserve to be out of the squad. I like him, he is a good guy, but I wanted to keep the same defensive alignment that we had against Watford.

The same is about Sagna. Bacary is the most positive person that I have ever met. He deserves to play.

I know that Yaya Toure’s contract expires next year. We still have time to discuss this issue. I am impressed by his playing qualities. He has played exceptionally well and looks like a young boy.

Yaya has character. He always comes to the rescue when we are in trouble. He is an exceptional player,” Guardiola said.

To recall, Guardiola had problems with Toure’s agent Dimitri Seluk which resulted Toure staying out of the team until the end of November.
