Man City boss Pellegrini: ‘Don’t blame Yaya Toure; the whole team is playing badly’ [Video]

Yaya Toure’s dramatic slump in form in this early season has been the elephant in the room at Manchester City for a few weeks now.

What initially looked like a brief blip has become an undeniably serious issue: Toure is a shadow of the title-deciding player he was last season, yet to score in any competition for the Citizens.

But boss Manuel Pellegrini refused to address the issue at his press conference today, saying it’s unfair to pinpoint one player:

‘The whole team has been playing badly, it’s not about Yaya.’
