#GLOCAFAward2015: What Is YAYA TOURE Talking About?


Yaya Toure, the Manchester City and Ivory Coast midfielder lost his cool after loosing out to Emerick Aubameyang, the Borussia Dortmund's Pierre and Gabonese striker at the just concluded GloCAF African Footballer of the Year award held in Abuja. stating that the decision is "pathetic", "indecent" and "brings shame to Africa".
He did not waste time to hit out at the decision makers, insisting "even Fifa" would not have reached such a conclusion. In his words, he says "I’m very, very disappointed," he told Afrique Foot. "It’s sad to see Africa react this way, that they don't think African achievements are important.
“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.

It will be recalled that Yaya captained the Ivory Coast to their first Africa Cup of Nations victory since 1992 at the start of last year and was named in the championship's team of the tournament. He feels he was traded for the Gabonese Intl but some also think that Mikel Obi of Nigeria was also traded for Yaya sometime ago..........when he was awarded this title at the expense of the fan's favorite.

Sometime in October, Toure was hard on his critics in a controversial interview, accusing them of "spreading bulls***", and has had a number of disagreement with the press in the UK and Africa.
