One of the most handsome farewells a player can receive. We can not forget the period from Roberto Mancini, and especially Manuel Pellegrini.

The Ivorian, an integral figure as City stabilised themselves as a top club, is set for his final home game against Brighton on Wednesday.

"Yaya is not going to stay next season", Guardiola said, as quoted by The Mirror.

Sunny, warmer weather in the forecast this week
Spot mountain showers will remain in the forecast on Friday as the rest of the state stays dry and temps begin to rise. Highs look to still be in the upper-80s for Friday, but mostly cloudy skies will decrease our chances of hitting 90.

The former Olympiacos and Monaco player made 229 Premier League appearances in his eight seasons at Etihad Stadium and won two league titles one FA Cup and two League Cup in his 8-year spell with City. "All the game we will be focused on winning the game against Brighton for Yaya, and we are going to try to do it for him".

"He had a little problem but has had a ideal training session", Guardiola said.

But the fact remains that he will go down as one of the greatest players to pull on the sky blue shirt of City, as well as being recognised as a Premier League great.

Afghanistan describes attack on journalists as "a crime against press, humanity"
The United States now has about 15,500 troops in Afghanistan with 7,800, assigned to the NATO-led Operation Resolute Support. The second was meant to hit those rushing to the scene of the attack to help the victims of the first blast.

Toure arrived at City as their centrepiece but leaves a squad adorned with treasures, many of whom might never have arrived were it not for the hand he played in transforming the club into the powerhouse of today. "But the best way to arrive at the World Cup is to play good in these three games", said the manager of the final Premier League matches.

Such is the attacking and defensive ability of Toure that he was an ever-present in the heart of City's midfield for seven years before falling behind this season.

An historic 18-game winning run earlier in the season laid the foundations for success, and there is the promise of more records to come . We have time for everything in life.
