What is your best memory with FC Barcelona?

Yaya Touré: “When we won 6-2 against Madrid in the Santiago Bernabéu. That match was iconic! It was at their stadium against a great Madrid side! We produced complete football that night. I will never forget it.”

Your favorite pitch?

Yaya Touré: “My favourite pitch is the Camp Nou because many stars like Ronaldo, Maradona etc… have played there. I’ve also played at that stadium with Messi, Eto’o, Henry, Alves, Iniesta etc… I am very grateful for reaching that stage.”

Touré has played a total of 74 games with FC Barcelona, winning 6 trophies.

What’s the difference between the Clásico and the Manchester Derby?

Yaya Touré: “To be honest the Clásico is much bigger. United were always one of the best in England but City weren’t. Barça vs Madrid is the biggest rivalry in history.”

The best 5 players you’ve played with?

Yaya Touré: “Messi, Henry, Eto’o, Xavi and Iniesta. At that time, they were unbeatable.”

Everyone has some kind of passion. For me, it is FC Barcelona. I started to write stories about the club I support in 2017, and have been lucky enough to be part of such a wonderful team.
