Yaya Toure has been backed over his rant against Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola with further claims that he will never win the UEFA Champions League again.

Toure launched a scathing attack on Guardiola yesterday after the Spaniard sanctioned his exit for the second time since they first met at FC Barcelona.

The City legend felt he was given respect and his record with African players' came under the spotlight.

Now, Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk, who's been known to be equally outspoken as his client added more into the current ordeal.

"God sees everything. As a man who acted with Yaya, the legend of the club, which under different pretexts did not give the opportunity to go on the field," he said as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

"He turned all Africa against himself, many African fans turned away from Manchester City. And I’m sure that many African shamans in the future will not allow Guardiola to win the Champions League.

"The fact that Guardiola ended Yaya’s career in Manchester City is not even a mistake, but a crime. But the boomerang will return, Pep. You will still see what the African shamans are. Remember this always." Seluk added.

"At Benfica there is the curse of coach Bela Guttmann, after which the team loses all the European cup finals. And Guardiola will beat this record, despite the money injected into him."
