UCL Final: Fans React To Yaya Toure’s Presence In Instabul Amid Claims Of A Curse On Pep Guardiola. The UEFA Champions League final is finally here, with Manchester City and Inter Milan competing for the top club honours in European football.
The Italians will be hoping to end an uneven season on a strong note. At the same time, the English champions hope to accomplish a historic treble after winning the Premier League and FA Cup.
UEFA dignitaries, former players, and legends from each club have already arrived at Istanbul’s Ataturk Olympic Stadium and are making their presence known.
Man City’s official website verified Sergio Aguero’s participation at squad training yesterday, while Yaya Toure also confirmed his presence at the stadium. The former Ivorian midfielder has a strained relationship with Pep Guardiola, having been sacked by both Barcelona and Manchester City.
Guardiola has lost two semi-finals and one final since his agent suggested an African curse would prevent him from winning the Champions League again. Taking to Twitter, Yaya uploaded a picture of himself in the stadium amid claims his agent has lifted the curse, and fans could not shy away from talking about it. “Who’s ready for the FINAL tomorrow? COME ON CITYYYY,” wrote Yaya.
