Yaya found himself frozen out of the first-team after his agent severally accused Pep of ‘humiliating’ the Ivorian.

Pep responded that the only way Yaya, who was left out of the team’s Champions League squad would make a return to the team is through an unreserved apology.

“I wish to apologize-on behalf of myself and those who represent me- to the management team and all those working for at the club for misunderstandings from the past.

Those statements do not represent my views on the club or the people who work there. I have nothing but respect for Manchester City and only wish the best for the football club.”

I am immensely proud to have played a part in the club’s history and want to help City succeed further. I live to play football and entertain the fans.

“On that note, I would like to thank all of the fans foe their messages through this difficult period. This means a great deal to me and my family.”
