Pep Guardiola has officially responded to Manchester City legend Yaya Toure's outburst over his alleged 'problems with African players' after initially refusing to comment.

In a war of words between the Ivory Coast legend his agent Dimitri Seluk and Guardiola, the Spaniard took a cautious approach initially - but he's since called out Toure over the sensational claims.

"It's a lie and he knows it," Guardiola stated to TV3. "We were together for two years and now this is when he says it.

"He never told me face to face."
