Yaya Toure had a number of playing time for the European elite clubs, but the midfielder is still fond of memories at Camp Nou where he spent three seasons.
Former Barcelona, and Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure while responding to a question from a fan in an interview with FIFA on social media.
About the five best players he played the Ivorian listed messy, Henry , Eto, Iniesta, and Xavi all of whom were his former Barcelona teammates.
Messi, Henry, Eto’o, Iniesta and Xavi,” said Toure. “In that era they were unbeatable.”
“Camp Nou is my favourite stadium said, Toure. He made 116 appearances for the Catalans.
“because stars like Ronaldo and Maradona have played, and because Messi, Eto’o, Henry, Alves, Iniesta, and co could play there too,
” I’m grateful for that time of my life.”
Toure said one of my favourite memories “was when we beat Real Madrid 6-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“That was an iconic game, against a big rival at their own stadium. That day we played total football. I’ll never forget it.”
When asked to compare between the Manchester derby and the El-classico he responded
“Honestly, the Clasico is much bigger. United were always one of the great English sides but for many years, City weren’t. But Barca-Madrid is the biggest rivalry in football history.”
