Yaya Toure's birthday: Newspaper adds Toure's date of birth to list of important dates for the new Premier League season
Toure was involved in a childish spat with Manchester City
Thursday 07 August 2014
A newspaper have not let Yaya Toure forget when he threw his toys out of the pram earlier this summer.
The Manchester City midfielder was rumoured to be on the verge of leaving the defending Premier League champions after the club were said to have forgotten his birthday (they didn't).
Toure's agent Dimitry Seluk said the Ivorian was unhappy with the club.
The story caused a media storm, with the public and the press criticising Toure for his childish outburst - City do pay him around £250,000-a-week after all.
Toure has now claimed he wants to stay at City "for as long as possible", but the Daily Express have not let him forget his outburst.
In a small panel that has the football season's important dates, the paper have humorously added Toure's birthday, 13 May.
Manchester City players reportedly left Toure furious when they supposedly put the mock calendar up in the dressing room - though these claims are yet to be backed up by any City player or member of staff.
