Guardiola 12/1 not to sign another African for Man City

Following Yaya Touré’s attack on former manager Pep Guardiola, we've priced up the likelihood of him never signing another African player at Man City...


We make it 12/1 that we never see another African player in a sky blue shirt while Pep is at the helm, following Yaya Touré’s controversial comments about the City manager.

It is also 1/4 that Riyad Mahrez signs for City but is sold before the end of his new contract with the Manchester side.

Or it’s 7/5 that he starts less than 20 games for them next season.

And it could be that these two face-off sooner than expected, with Touré favoured to head to West Ham during this window, a move currently priced 7/4.

When asked, our very own Paddy Power said: “Yaya Touré’s scathing attack on his former manager has left us all in the queue for some popcorn.

“And we’ve cut the odds that Pep will go one step further and fail to sign another African player during his time at the club.”
