Yaya Toure turns down his ‘Man of the Match’ champagne
Yaya Toure scores 2 goals to take Manchester City a step closer to winning the league 🙂
Manchester City goal hero Yaya Toure forfeited his man of the match champagne on religious grounds, the day it was revealed the Premier League considered changing the ‘prize’ for that very reason.
In a statement a spokesman for England’s top flight admitted that advice had been sought to ensure that all individuals were catered for, and no offence was caused, when it came to post-match awards.
City star Toure, a Muslim from the Ivory Coast, handed the large bottle of alcohol to team-mate Joleon Lescott. But on receiving the champagne, he turned to Lescott and said: ‘I don’t drink because I am a Muslim, so you keep it.’
