Everyone has their own opinion as to who should win the PFA Player of the Year award after the nominations were revealed yesterday.
For me, while it is a tight call between him and Luis Suarez, it has to be Yaya Toure.
His swashbuckling style has seen a set-piece dexterity, attacking prowess and consistency added to it this season.
The fact is that with only a few weeks left of the season City are now set to struggle to win the title - with Yaya put for two weeks injured.
He does not feel that he gets the credit or recognition he deserves because he is African - suggesting that if he was European he would be considered a more complete talent than he is at the moment.
But not to get involved in a debate on a saturated topic - for me it is what he went on to say about a current Chelsea peer and a former Chelsea legend that perked my interest.
He was asked if the likes of Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba had made significant contributions - and whether they too felt under-appreciated - this was his answer:
"Those players [Eto’o and Drogba] are more than legends for me and Africa. Definitely [they feel under-appreciated]. I am very proud to be African, I want to defend African people and I want to show to the world that African players can be as good as the Europeans and South Americans."
The Ivorian is clearly proud of his heritage - and not afraid to forget his current title run-in with Chelsea to praise two strikers of theirs, past and present, when it comes to bigging up his beloved continent.
