Yaya Toure spoke out about his willingness to reconcile with Pep Guardiola, his ex Barcelona and Manchester City coach, after outlining that of his close bond with Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp.

Despite Toure’s willingness to reconcile, despite submitting a second letter of apologies for his comments in regards to Guardiola, the two have not yet reunited.
In the midst of such optimism, Toure revealed that he has one top boss with whom he communicates secret messages, but it just so happened to be the one who is facing Guardiola in the next few days in person of Jurgen Klopp.
Yaya Toure while talking to Times said “Klopp, when he wins games, I text him and he is delighted and he always invites me (to meet him) and texts me back. Does this guy rest? I don’t think so, he loves football. He’s a top, top, guy.”
When quizzed about his absence of communication with Guardiola, Toure indicated that he hopes to mend fences with the Manchester City’s coach in the near future. “I put that in the past and put it down to the Covid situation,” the former midfielder said. wish to see him. I will be delighted. I need to talk to people who have a passion for football. I haven’t been in touch with him because I don’t have his number.”
