Yaya Toure has broken his silence over the rumours he was unhappy over the summer to say that he’s really unhappy about it.
“Over the summer there was a lot of speculation about birthday cakes and rubbish like that. It was disappointing for me.”
Toure was believed to be upset after his agent revealed he did not receive a cake for his 31st birthday:
“None of them shook his hand on his birthday. It’s really sick”, said Toure’s representative Dimitri Seluk at the time.
And these comments were backed-up by the Ivorain:
“Everything Dimitri said is true. He speaks for me. I will explain after the World Cup,” Toure promised.
However, after having time to think on it, Toure has apparently come to the conclusion that throwing a hissy fit over not getting a cake on your birthday from your employers who pay you £200k a week isn’t the most mature response from a 31-year-old.
