One Day I Will Return And Play For Barcelona

One Day I Will Return And Play For Barcelona

Manchester City newbie, Yaya Toure has not even played a game for the Blues, but in an amazing statement the £200,000-per-week Premier League highest earner said...

'The day of the signing [for City] was difficult for me. I was sad because in all those years I only had Barcelona in my head and now I'm out.'

'I'm very sorry because the club is the club in my heart. My time in Barcelona has been perfect. Here I have my best friends and always thought I would end my career here'

'I want to thank everyone for what they have done for me. The people of Barcelona are very good who know much about football. I have no words to apologise to all the people who wanted me to stay.'

The younger brother of current City player, Kolo added...

'I go to City to help them grow and take them to the level of Manchester United and Chelsea. However, I am convinced that some day I shall return to Spain. My heart is Barca and some day I will wear this shirt again, I am sure of that. Barca is the club of my life.'

I am going to refrain from adding my thoughts and leave that to you.

Yaya's comments were taken from the Daily Mail.

Cover the badge and tell him to guess who he's signed for! Players like that are turning Man City into an absolute joke, full of mercenaries, like a diluted Real Madrid. Imagine if Kolo goes somewhere else? Or if one isn't picked, the other one will kick off. What a sorry state of affairs!

Going to enjoy beating this collection of money grabbers.

When's the school holidays over? Zbam and Klutch clearly have too much time on their hands.

He said it to a local Catalan radio station. AKA he is telling people what they plan to hear. Tevez said he'd go back to West Ham and there are a billion other examples. Yet another City-related issue blown out of proportion by the media, just like the false claims that Yaya is earning 220k per week when it is closer to half of that.
06/07/2010 09:53:00
I do hope your £200K a week is an estimate bor a guess as he certainly isn't worth that.
06/07/2010 09:55:00
His wages are plain wrong, who in the World as a midfielder gets more than the strikers. Maybe he did want to stay, but the club wanted to sell so they could use the money on Fab. Lets wait and see how he shapes up playing, talk is cheap.
06/07/2010 10:05:00
Barca tried to get him to stay, THEY wanted HIM to stay, knowing how good he is (only politics keep him out of the first team, Busquets is the son of a powerful man in Barca and is also Catalan who the club always favours, but Yaya is much better!) but he wanted to be first choice so pushed for the move. Again, this is just another media attempt to make us look bad, Yaya simply told a local radio station that he'd love to go back to Barca some day, as that is what fans would want to hear.

I have to admit that when I first saw that I was annoyed. However after digging and seeing where this came from I don't believe a word of it.
