Toure praises De Bruyne and Sterling

The midfielder believes the two new signings have helped make the club one of Europe’s most exciting teams

Yaya Toure believes Manchester City are now one of the most exciting teams in Europe following the summer signings of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling.

City top the Premier League by two points after six games having spent close to £100million on new players, with two of their high-profile recruits already making their mark.

Both players have already found the back of the net and Toure hailed them for giving the side more options in attack.

“Kevin De Bruyne has been brilliant. He made an assist and scored one goal at Sunderland. Raheem is scoring, and [Sergio] Aguero is our top striker and our top goalscorer,” the Ivory Coast international said.

“Could we be one of the most exciting teams in Europe now? Yeah, to be honest, I think yes. It is full credit to chairman who made this happen.

“As a player, it makes my duty a little bit less! For the moment I just focus on defending because offensively we have a lot of power to show like Sergio, Sami [Nasri], [Jesus] Navas, Kevin. They don’t need me on the attack side now!”
