Yaya Toure’s agent has said that Toure wants assurances from Manchester City to have a ‘job for life’ at the club.
The 31-year-old midfielder, Yaya Toure was said to be very upset by a perceived lack of respect shown him by Manchester City’s officials.
But Dimitri Seluk, the agent says that toure wants the similar treatment to that given Zinedine Zidane by Real Madrid. After ending his playing career Zizu became an adviser and assistant coach at Real Madrid.
“We like you and you are with us forever” ,
Seluk added in his speech.
On Tuesday, Seluk said Toure could leave Man City because of the lack of respect of the club owners on his 31st birthday, ignoring Toure when the City squad arrived in UAE to celebrate their Premier League title win last week.
Yaya Toure tweeted his backing for the agent’s claims to stop any contradictions, although one telling Toure’s tweet was deleted by Thursday. The tweet was as following,
” Everything Dimitry said is true. He speaks for me. I will give an interview after the World Cup to explain.”
On reportedly, Man City presented Toure with a cake and tweeted their greetings and they have no intention of selling the midfielder, who has three years left on an extension of contract signed in April, 2013.
Toure’s apparent disappointment with the richest City officials may be a tactic aiming at increasing his earnings after this season in which Toure scored 24 goals in 49 matches for City. But his agent, Seluk denied the claim. He ensured the contract to be OK saying,
” For us, the most important is attention from the club to whom Yaya gives a lot.”

Firstly, Zidane was playing a role of advisor to club president Florentino Perez and then as an assistant to the current manager Carlo Ancelotti.
One the other hand, Yaya Toure joined Manchester City from Spanish Club Barcelona in 2010. Currently he was linked with a return to Barcelona when Seluk made his comment on Thusday.
Toure said that he is interested in playing for another club next season and added after FIFA World Cup 2014 Brazil, he would resolve his future.
