Yaya Toure confirms he’s staying at Manchester City to SSN, laughs about birthday cake farce [Video]

9d4545c0 e038 11e3 97cb 03da91233705 yayaplane Yaya Toure confirms hes staying at Manchester City to SSN, laughs about birthday cake farce [Video]A farce bordering on satire took place at the end of last season, when Yaya Toure’s agent complained that Man City had forgotten his player’s birthday.

(Awwwwwwwwwww.)

It was all a fabrication, of course, a classic agent move to try and engineer a fresh contract for his player.

Yaya says he never actually wanted to leave, and laughed about the whole birthday farce to Sky Sports News earlier today.

In a pretty unprecedented move, or a rare one at least, SSN got hold of a Premier League player for a telephone interview, in which Yaya dismissed all speculation linking him with a move away from the Etihad, confirming that he’s staying at Manchester City.

Listen to Yaya’s SSN phone interview below.
