Manchester City’s Yaya Toure: I hide from unwanted female admirers

The Ivorian midfielder has admitted that he has to try to escape unwanted attention from female suitors.

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has admitted that he has to hide from women to escape their attention.

The Ivory Coast international has confessed that despite being married he is openly pursued by women and that he actively tries to escape from them.

“I hide. In order to escape them you have to change your phone number regularly as they’ve all got good contacts,” he is quoted as saying by The Mirror.

“But you can’t live without a phone as there are things to deal with every day.

“Sometimes I wonder what’s going through girls’ heads. It’s embarrassing.

"There was one who openly courted me. It was really shocking! She asked for my phone number and I gave her a wrong number in order to get away from her.

"I escape from them. I’m married. My wife is enough for me. I like peace and that’s my way of living.”

City fans and all of Toure’s female admirers will miss the powerhouse midfielder laster this month as he is set to represent his country in the African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.

The former Barcelona star has been a key facet in Manchester City’s recent success and is adjudged by many as one of the best players in his position in world football.
