Manchester City vice captain Yaya Toure believes they can still challenge to defend title thinking about what happened last year.

Yaya Toure

Ivory Coast have been eliminated from AFCON and now their most reliable player is back in the city bringing hopes for the club as their nearest rival Manchester United haven’t lost any games this season.

Talking with City’s official website Yaya Toure stated.” We are further behind than we’d like, of course, but all we need to do is think about last season to know what is possible, United have a strong squad and on paper, they have an easier run in than we do but the title race is a long way from finished. It only takes a couple of results to go our way and we’re right back in it – I’m sure we’ll come back.”

while talking about coming back from AFCON former Barcelona star added.” My friends are all here and are happy to see me and we are like a family or brothers who will all fight together – and that is a very important thing to have. I feel like I’m home again and I met some City fans before my flight from Paris to Manchester and they said ‘welcome home, Yaya’ and they said they wanted me to help the team and bring happiness to our supporters. That’s what I aim to do.”
