    Yaya was class yesterday, seeing him in person you appreciate just how class he is, the power and the way he bursts past players. Also Kompany was immense, the guy is quality

    I totally respect Yaya's decision. The only people blowing it out of proportion are those that see the very award as offensive.

    I doubt the FA/whomever knew that Yaya was against drinking. Religion is after all a private matter.

    The way i see things, it might only be offensive if Toure Yaya was FORCED/OBLIGED/EXPECTED to keep it and thats not the case as its been happening since forever, its more of a tradition now. I cant speak for others but if i was in his position, i'd not be offended, i'd just pass it on to a team mate who didn't have a problem enjoying that bottle lol

    Yeah, no big deal.

    Nothing for Yaya to be offended about and he really wasn't/isn't. Daily Fail making a story out of this is 'same old, same old' garbage from them.

    Like he cares about the prize. The win was more important.

    He probably hates him because of the spat with Scholes where Yaya holds up an imaginary card, asking the ref to book Scholes. That's all I can think of, unless he just hates him because he is a Citeh player.

    A religious person saying one thing in public and doing another in private? Surely not, I don't believe it.

    Manchester City's Yaya Toure on drink driving charge

    Manchester City footballer Yaya Toure has been charged with drink driving, police have confirmed.
    Police said the 33-year-old of Macclesfield, Cheshire was driving in Dagenham in east London at the time of the alleged offence.
    Police said he was charged on Tuesday with driving while his alcohol level was above the legal limit .
    He has been bailed and is due to appear at Barkingside Magistrates' Court on 13 December.
    The midfielder played in Manchester City's 3-1 defeat at home to Chelsea on Saturday.
    He was recalled to the Manchester City squad earlier this month after apologising for "misunderstandings" relating to comments made by his agent Dimitri Seluk.
    In 2012, Toure spoke about being a devout Muslim and refused a champagne man of the match award due to his religious beliefs.
    The club is yet to comment.

    Yaya still cannot admit the truth.

    Yaya Touré admits to drink-driving but denies intentionally consuming alcohol

    Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has pleaded guilty to drink-driving, but says he had not "intentionally consumed alcohol".

    The Ivory Coast player, 33, accepts he was "above the permitted limit", and did not challenge the charge.

    He was fined £54,000 - a means-tested fine - and banned from driving for 18 months by Barkingside magistrates.

    "It is well known that I am a Muslim and do not drink, said Toure. "I have always refused alcohol."

    Toure was driving in Dagenham in east London at the time of the offence last month.

    He pleaded guilty to the charge on Monday, but did not say in his Facebook statement how the alcohol got into his system.

    In his statement Toure added: "Drink-driving is a serious crime and even though I was not intentionally consuming alcohol I accept the ban and fine and I would like to apologise for this situation."

    The Ivory Coast international was recalled to the Manchester City squad earlier this month after apologising for "misunderstandings" relating to comments made by his agent Dimitri Seluk.

    Does he really expect anyone to believe this ?

    This is yet another episode that confirms what we have known about him for years ... the guy is a epic tool.

    No wonder Pep got rid of him at Barca despite him being such a dominant force on the pitch.

    His excuse.....


    He claimed he had only drunk Diet Coke and was not aware the jug he was drinking from had been mixed with brandy.

    But a judge said it was "inconceivable" he did not know he was drinking and banned him from driving for 18 months and fined him £54,000 - less than week's wages.

    He was over TWICE the legal driving limit.

    Drinking alcohol is a personal thing and not an issue

    But it's the hypocrisy here because he presents himself as some paragon of virtue and being a good Muslim

    But then again that's the problem with a sizeable number of religious folk

    I don't understand how he expects people to believe that he was not aware of consuming alcohol despite being above twice the limit lol.

    So not only is he a cry baby, he's also a hypocrite. Could definitely learn a thing or two from his brother.
