CAIRO – 23 November 2017: Manchester City’s midfielder Yaya Toure is still happy with his club, although he has played a minor role with the Premier League leaders this season.
Toure, 34, entered the squad for the first time this season during the 1-0 victory over Feyenoord on Tuesday. Pep Guardiola secured their place in the knockout stages with no losses in the group stage.
"You want me to play? Tell the manager," Toure told reporters after the match.
He added, "Look at my face; do you think I am frustrated? Am I enjoying? Of course. [If] I am frustrated... I would say to the manager 'I don't want to be on the bench and I want to go home'."
City won the last 17 games in all competitions and widened the gap to eight points to their closest rivals in the Premier League.
"You see Feyenoord, they came and were difficult. The manager at the end was quite angry with the team. We can do better than that. We played lazily," Toure added.
"We are in good form, [but] when I see Juventus, or Real Madrid, Barcelona -- all these teams, we've got to be stronger and better. Statistics mean nothing, and we have to play against them and see where we are," he concluded.
City will play against Huddersfield Town on Sunday, who is in 10th place in the league.
