While everyone thought he was going to leave,
Yaya Touré finally extended his contract.
The Ivorian explained why he extended his stay in England.
When Pep Guardiola arrives in a team, he decides immediately who will play and who will not. He immediately draws up a list of unwanted players. When the Spaniard signed in Manchester City, Yaya Touré was one of the first victims. The former Barça coach had made it clear that he would not play much or not at all. That was the case at the beginning of the season, but finally the Ivorian had more time to play. He even tsarted the game several times proving that his coach was wrong. Today, the one who went through AS Monaco decided to extend until 2018 withthe Sky Blues Shirt. A choice that surprised more than one.
On the club's official website, Yaya Touré mentions again this extension and explained his choice to continue with Manchester one year longer even if he was not Pep Guardiola's No. 1 choice: "I'm delighted. I told myself that my adventure in Manchester City was not over and when I got a call from Txiki Begiristain (technical director of the club) and the coach, I was delighted. When I came here, I was trying to be part of a new story, something special that was happening with this club. I am very pleased to be part of this great club today, with great players around me helping me achieve my goals. Of course, I want to win titles, that's very important to me. I want to have fun, again, at my age, and staying here is a very good thing. It's a big club, which is going in the right direction with the new players coming in. "
Yaya Touré has managed to tip the scales on his side and get a contract extension. Good game.
We are not going to talk about a new era because he is the third "new" coach in a year. Besides to see the list of the convoked we find everyone and yet it could be that we finally find a real project of play after more than 12 months of wandering..
The tactical plan is already known it will be a 4-2-3-1 against the Guinea team but it's more our mental mindset that could count tonight
Bonjour Khallil, en vrai globe-trotter tu as atterri en Suisse en milieu de saison, comment es-tu arrivé dans ce club ? Peux-tu aussi nous faire la liste des pays dans lequels tu as joué ?
Hello, yes it is true that I have moved a lot, since the beginning of my career and often it was independent of my will.
At the beginning of the season I was in Macedonia this and it was so bad, at the beginning of December my brother Lambin Ismael (who is also my adviser) talks to me about a possibility to go play in Switzerland at Friborg.
I had a very good feeling on the phone with the coach and it was done naturally.
What attracted you to this choice?
What attracted me, the opportunity to return to Western Europe and also there was a sporting challenge to be met. Friborg was relegated, so the mission was to save the club. I like the challenges so I immediately I said yes.
After this season's has best scorer of your championship? What were the proposals?
Sure enough, the season was beautiful for me thank goodness. In 12 games, I put 10 goals in the championship.
We have had proposals from all over Switzerland and England.
Why did you choose to stay in Switzerland and sign in Nyon?
With my brother, we decided of a way to go for 1 year now. I had moved a lot before, so we chose stability and continuity by going up a division in Switzerland.Nyon is a very good club with very good infrastructure, it is the ideal place to continue my progression ..
You signed for two years and what about after?
Yes, I signed for 2 years. For the moment, I am concentrating on Nyon. I will try to do my job well and then what will happen will happen.
