Yaya Toure gets dragged into the Manchester City Financial Fair Play situation as reports spread of relating the star as a beneficiary of City’s misconduct.
The Ivorian’s agent, Dimitry Seluk comes to his defence denying the allegations of secret payments made to the former Manchester City midfielder.
Manchester City are said to have breached over 100 rules involved in the Financial Fair Play regulations of the UEFA.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that Yaya Toure’s former agent, Dimitry Seluk, has denied allegations of secret payments made to the Ivorian midfielder during his time at Manchester City.
This denial comes after the Premier League accused the club of over 100 counts of misconduct.
In an interview with The Guardian, Seluk stated that all of his client’s dealings were transparent and that he and Yaya Toure paid all necessary taxes.
Seluk also offered to provide the same information to the independent commission that is investigating the charges.
Seluk’s relationship with Manchester City and its fans has been strained in the past, particularly after he placed a UEFA Champions League curse on Pep Guardiola’s side and declared that the Spanish manager had “turned all of Africa against himself” with his treatment of Yaya Toure in his later years with the club.
Despite the recent accusations against Manchester City, Seluk has taken a surprising stance by coming to the club’s aid and denying any wrongdoing as far as he and his former client are concerned.
This stance contrasts with the highly publicized conflicts he has had with the club and its fanbase in the past, such as the infamous birthday cake saga.
It remains to be seen what the outcome of the Premier League’s investigation will be, but for now, Seluk has made it clear that there will be no further altercations with him, at least in relation to this case.
With the Premier League set to go at the current Champions, more people are set to be dragged into the narrative going forward.
