Yaya Toure angered by CSKA denial

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini backed Yaya Toure after the midfielder reported receieving racist taunts in their Champions League game against CSKA Moscow

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has hit back at claims from CSKA Moscow officials that they have no case to answer after the club’s fans racially abused him.

• Rothwell: The Russian reaction
• Curtis: Crossing boundaries
• Mooney: Pantilimon's chance
• Moonda: Russia 2018 - no place for Africans?

In an interview with BBC Afrique, part of the World Service, Toure also said that he is ashamed "to still have to talk about" the subject of racism.

On Wednesday Toure urged UEFA to act after he told referee Ovidiu Hategan he believed he was being racially abused by CSKA Moscow fans during his side's 2-1 Champions League Group D win at the Arena Khimki.

And he has now taken an opportunity to express his anger at CSKA after they protested their innocence.

"I am not deaf," he said. "We are all humans. It is not a nice feeling to go and play a football match, to bring joy to the people and to be called a monkey or to hear monkey noises.

"I don't look like a monkey. Other people must have seen it.

"Doumbia is a young brother. Someone I admire who I have known a long time -- we come from the same country.

"I don't want to say things that will put him in trouble but you can see a little bit the manipulation around all this.

"It is so pathetic and so sad to see things like that. I am ashamed to still have to talk about this subject."

Should CSKA be found guilty the consequences could be far reaching.

They would almost certainly be forced to play at least one -- and possibly more -- matches behind closed doors, in addition to a potentially large fine.

There are also implications for Russia, with Ivory Coast international Toure warning on Friday that black players may consider boycotting the 2018 World Cup in Russia unless the issue is addressed properly.

However, he played down those comments, adding: "We know there are very large stakes for the country [Russia] around the World Cup.

"But let's leave FIFA and UEFA to do their work. UEFA has decided to apply the rules -- that's all we want.

"A lot of things have been said about racism. If today an organisation and supporters stray from the straight path or slip up, the goal is to see them straight again."

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
