Man City: Yaya Toure not Named in City CL Squad

Yaya Toure has been left out of the Manchester City squad for their Champions League campaign.

The Ivory Coast international's only appearance for Pep Guardiola this season came in the second leg of their Champions League qualifier with Steaua Bucurest after the tie had already been sealed following their 5-0 win in the first leg.

The 33-year-old will find game time even more limited under Guardiola who clearly doesn't see the aging midfielder as part of his long-term plans.

In a squad of 25 players, eight must be homegrown players meaning Toure in part missed out as a result of this UEFA rule.

The City squad named by Guardiola is as follows:

Goalkeepers: Claudio Bravo, Willy Caballero

Defenders: Bacary Sagna, Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta, Aleksandar Kolarov, Gael Clichy, John Stones, Nicolas Otamendi

Midfielders: Fernando, Raheem Sterling, Ilkay Gundogan, Jesus Navas, Kevin De Bruyne, Fabian Delph, Leroy Sane, David Silva, Fernandinho

Forwards: Nolito, Sergio Aguero, Kelechi Iheanacho
