Yaya Toure said that his career “won’t be complete” without being given another chance to lift the Champions League trophy. The Ivory Coast international won this trophy back in 2009 with Barcelona and he wants to do the same thing with the Citizens.

The 34-year old midfielder has won almost everything with Manchester City – but there is very important the word “almost”. He won two Premier Leagues, two EFL Cups and the FA Cup. Is it enough? No! He wants the Champions League trophy for his side as well.

The former Barcelona and Monaco player said, according to Goal“I want the Champions League again – so badly. I have won everything in England with City and now I want something that is really special for the fans and the club. I have been lucky enough to win some important trophies for my clubs and also Ivory Coast. But the Champions League is special. To be happy, I really need to win it again.”

Kompany is the DNA of City, says Goater

The former English Premier League footballer believes the Belgian was an integral part of the club in the last eleven years.

He is certain that the Champions League is the most difficult competition in the world: “To be honest, the Champions League is the most difficult competition in football. It is so hard to predict who will win it because all the teams have great quality. You have to be focused for every game because teams like Barcelona, [Real] Madrid and Juventus are excellent teams who are better than the teams we face in England. Experience is so important – and we have that now.”

He thinks that now it’s the right time to shine: “I can see the progress the team has made. At the moment, we are doing very well against some good European teams. But the big tests are the big teams like Barca, Madrid, Juventus, Bayern [Munich] and Paris Saint-Germain. We are one of the top teams now but we have to prove it. I am very excited because we want to play Madrid and Barca to show where we are.”
