Yaya Toure isn’t about to take losing the CAF’s Player of the Year award to Gabon International & Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang lightly.. In fact, he to a flamethrower to the federation and came off way salty in the process….
Not a good look Yaya.. Not a good look at all.
‘I’m very, very disappointed. It’s sad to see Africa react this way, that they don’t think African achievements are important,’ he said.
‘I think this is what brings shame to Africa, because to act in that way is indecent. But what can we do about it? Us Africans, we don’t show that Africa is important in our eyes. We favour more what’s abroad than our own continent. That is pathetic.’
‘I’ll give an example. Messi won all the trophies, but it’s Cristiano Ronaldo who won the award [Ballon d’Or 2014]. What would you say? It’s unfair.
‘Even FIFA, with all its history of corruption, wouldn’t do [what CAF judges did].
‘Yaya will take care of Yaya and let Africa take care of itself. As I’ve been told many times, you can’t take care of Africa too much because Africa will be the first to let you down.
‘When I return to Europe, a lot of questions will be asked. I think I’m going to have to answer them. As I’m someone who’s honest, I will always tell the truth.’
I know who IS celebrating though!
