EX-MANCHESTER CITY and Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure fancies himself as a manager – but has been turned away by Romanian side Sepsi Sf. Gheorghe.
The news comes after Toure also offered his services to struggling Barca earlier this week.

The 38-year-old claimed he is ‘available’ if Barcelona need – although it’s unclear if that’s as a player or coach.
And Toure has also reportedly put himself forward for the manager role at Romanian side Sepsi Sf. Gheorghe.
But the club, who are currently 12th in the Romanian Premier League with just one win from 11 games, are seemingly uninterested.
Romanian football journalist Emanuel Rosu revealed via Twitter: “Yaya Toure offered his managerial services to Sepsi Sf. Gheorghe in the Romanian top flight.
“The club’s bosses are hesitating, as they want someone with a proven record in the Romanian top flight.
“Christian Panucci and Walter Zenga were both offered through agents to Sepsi.”
Toure is currently assistant coach at Russian club Akhmat Grozny, although would seemingly prefer to be top dog.

He first ventured into the world of coaching earlier this year, joining Ukrainian side Olimpik Donetsk as assistant manager before leaving in June.
From there he joined current club Akhmat Grozny, but is yet to be given the chance as a head coach.
Toure played for seven teams in total during a career that spanned 19-years and a whopping 622 club appearances.
He also appeared 97 times for the Ivory Coast, and played for his country at THREE World Cups.
