Big Daddy Yaya split
FORMER Manchester City star Yaya Toure has parted company with his controversial long-time agent Dimitry Seluk.
We understand the pair had a difference of opinion on the direction of the midfielder’s career after Toure joined Chinese second division club Qingdao Huanghai in May.
Seluk’s only comment on the rift was “that’s life”.
But he was once so close to the 36-year-old that Toure named his son after him and used to call him Papushka, which means ‘Daddy’ in Russian.
Monaco-based agent Seluk brokered moves to Olympiakos, Monaco and Barcelona before taking him to City in 2010. Toure is now managed by TV presenter Leon Mann
