Yaya Toure: Man City can dominate after Sir Alex Ferguson exit
Yaya Toure believes that Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement will allow Manchester City the chance to "dominate" in seasons to come
Yaya Toure believes that Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement will allow Manchester City the chance to “dominate” in seasons to come.
The 71-year-old announced this week that he is to call time on his 26-year reign at Old Trafford in the summer, with David Moyes confirmed as Ferguson’s successor at United on Thursday.
City have watched on as United stormed to their 20th English league title this season, while Roberto Mancini’s men have the chance to lift the FA Cup on Saturday ahead of the final against Wigan.
But Ivory Coast midfielder Toure feels that City could now be set to overtake their local rivals following the Scot’s decision to step down.
Asked if there could be a power shift in Manchester, Toure told talkSPORT: “Yes, because Manchester City have a great project for the future and, after this movement now, I think City will be dominant in the future.
“The most important thing for us is to try to be the top club in Manchester. Before it was United, but now I hope it will be City.”
