SPORTS: YAYA TOURE’S MAN CITY COMEBACK IS AS CRAZY AS IT WAS UNEXPECTED

this
The Ivorian would have made headlines no
matter what would have happened after he
was named on Pep Guardiola’s team sheet,
but nobody expected this

Team news announcements rarely contain
too many genuine shocks, but news of
Yaya Toure’s inclusion for Manchester
City against Crystal Palace had the
Selhurst Park press room resembling
something like an office on Wall Street
during the financial crisis.
Toure scores on first Premier League start
under Pep
What was this? How had this happened?
Had City’s social media team made a
genuine clanger? Surely there was no way
Toure, all but a former Manchester City
player, was to be trusted by Pep Guardiola.
He was you know.
After more than two months in exile, and
with seemingly no way back, Toure
returned. It confounded everything
anybody who covers the club (first and
foremost me) thought they (we) had
known.
That Toure’s one prior appearance of the
season came against Steaua Bucharest
when City had a 5-0 aggregate lead said
everything about his place in Guardiola’s
early season plans: he didn’t have one.
