BAD LOSER YAYA TOURE.......NOT YOUR BIRTHRIGHT!




Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure, has expressed his anger after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was named the CAF African Footballer of the Year, ahead of him.

The Ivorian had won the prize for four consecutive years until Thursday, when Aubameyang took it home, thanks to votes by coaches and technical directors of African national teams.

“I’m very, very disappointed,” Toure said.

“I think this is what brings shame to Africa. Because to behave in this way, it is indecent!

“But what can we do? We Africans, we do not show that Africa is important to us. We focus more outside our own continent. That is pathetic!

“It’s sad to see Africa react this way, that they don’t think African achievements are important.”

The 32-year-old also claimed that Aubameyang won because of his excellent displays in Bundesliga, where he plays for Borussia Dortmund and not his showing at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

“I give an example: Lionel Messi has won all the trophies but [if] Cristiano Ronaldo has the award [the 2015 FIFA Ballon d’Or], what would you say? It would be unfair!

“FIFA, even with all the stories of corruption, would not do that! I believe that today, with what happened, CAF will go there too.” Toure implied he might be quitting any continental event, saying he would look after himself and forget Africa.

“Yaya will look after Yaya and Yaya will allow Africa be.

“As I often say, do not care too much for Africa because Africa will be the first to let you down.”

Still, he congratulated Aubameyang, saying: “You were brilliant.”
