Guardiola reveals why he will never manage Barcelona again

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola and club legend Yaya Toure

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has emphatically refuted Yaya Toure's allegations that he favours white players, branding the midfielder's comments "lies".

Speaking to TV3 (h/t Fay), the City boss denied the suggestions made by the Ivory Coast worldwide.

Yaya Toure launched a scathing attack on Pep Guardiola, accusing him of being racist.

Guardiola won 14 trophies in four seasons with the Blaugrana, including a famous clean sweep in 2009 when Barca won all six trophies available to them.

'We were together two years and it is only now when he says it. "He never told me face-to-face".

Since Pep Guardiola's arrival, Toure has only played a bit-part role.

"He turned all Africa against himself, many African fans turned away from Manchester City", he said. Do you really think he could've been like that with Andres Iniesta? I've been out of Barcelona for six years. It got to the point where I asked myself if it was because of my colour.

"When you see the problems he [Pep] has often had with African players, everywhere he has been, I ask myself questions".

Guardiola also insists he will never return for a second stint as Barcelona head coach and has no interest in becoming Camp Nou president. It was a fantastic era where I was taking on the world and we took it on together, with some incredible players, a young president [Joan Laporta], Txiki [Begiristain, now City's director of football].

"I even asked coaches for my stats".

"We had a generation of brutal players and the best player in the world [Lionel Messi] as well".
