Since Pep Guardiola's arrival, Toure has only played a bit-part role.
He was eventually offloaded to Manchester City arriving at the beginning of the clubs revolution.
The Citizens strolled to the top-flight title this season as they set no fewer than 11 records in England, including becoming the first team to crack 100 points in a single Premier League season.
Justice Department won't defend pre-existing conditions rule
President Donald Trump speaks to the media during a Cabinet meeting at the White House December 20, 2017 in Washington , DC. Jost said it's telling that three career Justice Department lawyers refused to support the administration's position.

Toure takes a place on the bench.
In a scathing and explosive interview with France Football last week, Toure said that Guardiola was cruel to him during their time together in Spain and that he began to wonder if his perceived mistreatment from his manager stemmed from a race issue. Do you really think he could've been like that with Andres Iniesta?
'But when you realise that he has problems with Africans, wherever he goes, I ask myself questions. Maybe we Africans are not always treated by some in the same way as others. When you see the problems he (Pep) has often had with African players, everywhere he has been, I ask myself questions.

He also said that Trump's public expression is a reiteration of his point of view, and that "we should not be surprised to see that".
"He will never admit it but the day he fields a team with five Africans, non-naturalised, I promise that I will send him a cake." he added.
We're not quite sure why Toure made those comments but given the reaction from his former teammates and Guardiola himself, it seems they made more out of spite than any sort of evidence.
"It's a lie and he knows it", Guardiola was quoted as saying by Marca in an interview with Catalan station TV3.

Trump had told Trudeau any retaliation would be a mistake and the prime minister agreed that it was "not something we want to do". The Canadian leader pulled a "sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption", Kudlow said, that amounted to "a betrayal".
