Toure believes there is Barca influence at Man City

Ivorian midfielder Yaya Toure believes that Manchester City are playing in a similar style and winning games like European Champions Barcelona. Having played for both clubs during their success, Toure is one of the most qualified to make such a statement.

Fresh from scoring twice in his team’s 3-0 win at Villareal, making City the first English side to win at the El Madrigal, Toure does however stress they are not on the same level as their Catalan counterparts yet.

He does though tell the Manchester Evening News that the squad’s mentality is similar. “Everybody is getting that winning mentality. If you want to win things you need that. You have to work, concentrate and recover quickly every two days.

“Every game we go out, we have to put pressure on ourselves to be winners. But with the team we have now everybody has that and everyone is improving well.”
