30 Jan Pep praises “exceptional” Yaya after FA Cup win
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola hailed Yaya Toure’s quality following the Citizens’ FA Cup win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Yaya played a key role in the fourth round victory, scoring a stunning freekick in added time to make it 3-0, and he was one of the players picked out by Guardiola during his post-match interview.
The manager said:
“We can play better but I’m happy and David (Silva) was amazing the way he kept waiting and waiting for right moment before playing in Leroy – and Yaya, with his quality, scoring the third – he is an exceptional player.”
