Weight gain is a luxury no soccer play wants to possess especially big clubs and big coaches. Almost every player fights that and thankfully they always win..Yaya Toure initially appeared to strangely welcome weight gain as he was so confident with it. But the arriving of the best coach in the world in town, the clock started ticking against Yaya.

Toure scored both goals in the 2-1 victory against Crystal Palace on Saturday as he earned a shock recall to the City line-up after apologizing for comments made by his outspoken agent, Dmitri Seluk.
Despite initially rocking the boat by insisting Toure had no reason to apologies, Seluk himself has now vowed not to give any more incendiary interviews to the press as Toure continues to work his way back into the fold, although it is understood that stance is not as a result of any agreement with City officials.
