Yaya knows why - Guardiola tight-lipped on Toure absence for Manchester City

Yaya knows why - Guardiola tight-lipped on Toure absence for Manchester City

"He's 17 years old, he's a City player, he grew up in the academy, he loves the club, he's a City fan and for us he's a gift".

There is no suggestion Toure is injured, but speculation is mounting that Guardiola is less than impressed with his attitude and application on the training ground.

Returning last season for the first time in the last 10 years, the champion's title, Feyenoord also celebrated the return to Rotterdam of European cup matches.

Feyenoord have started their domestic season even better than City, with four straight wins that see them out in front of the pack in the Eredivisie.

But after acquiring one of the world's top coaches in Guardiola and backing him in the transfer market, Owen believes City must now start to deliver. "It is just a sporting decision", he said, quoted by the Daily Mail. So, he could be there in this first Champions League match.

Celtic made a late move to sign Phil Foden on loan this summer - but Manchester City do not want him to go anywhere. Hopefully he'll play soon but it depends on him'.

Britain's official departure in March 2019 and European elections in June 2019 mean the focus will be elsewhere that year. Juncker recalled that when he gave the same speech a year ago that the European Union was "not in a good state".

Goalkeeper Ederson will be playing in Manchester City's opening Champions League game against Feyenoord on Wednesday.

EDERSON was pictured training with Manchester City in head gear today after his nasty collision with Sadio Mane.

"The step for the English teams - the club teams and national teams - is to win one, or be close and then say, "OK, wow, we are there".

Obviously, Jorgensen's absence is a blow for the Dutch outfit but they did notch 56 home goals in the Eredivisie last season and in Boetius and Steven Burghuis they boast two wide players capable of causing City problems at the back. With injury doubts once again circling around captain Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi's woeful lack of pace shown up by the trouble he got from Mohamed Salah, the Catalan's insistence on three at the back and gung-ho attacking may be tempered on this occasion.

The upcoming duel will open the account of the face-to-face encounters of the Feyenoord-Manchester City confrontation.
