Of course it's difficult at City at the moment. We've all been through that. We're at the top and at some point you go down.

He has to understand that and maybe go somewhere where people want you.

I haven't talked to him about that [Marseille]. He's still at City, I respect that. But OM is a great club. He knows the French championship well.

It could be a great club for him.”

Yaya who won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and two League Cups has apologised to Guardiola and Manchester City on behalf his agent, Dimitri Seluk.
