See what he said “
Yaya Toure: “The other day I had a discussion with other African football Legends about why African Players choose to represent Foreign countries instead of their own. I think although they don’t choose their own nations, it brings bad luck to some of them. Look at Dembele, Ansu Fati, Sane, Jerome Boateng, Balotelli, etc, most of them suffer from long-term injuries, some get their contracts terminated and end up going to lower-divisions from playing for the biggest teams in Europe. Some are successful with their adopted national teams and clubs but yet they find problems knocking on their doors, like the recent news about Boateng ex Girlfriend. I think the gods in their original countries aren’t happy. No one is satisfied with Pogba no matter how much he tries, that’s another sign of bad luck. Umtiti has also suffered a lot and now he finds himself on the sidelines. Your Rudiger, you name them. Am not manipulating anyone, if they want to keep overlooking their own countries it’s up to them. What I know is that they don’t last long and those countries are only happy when they deliver once things get bad, they are the first to be sidelined ask Mario Balotelli. He was a darling in Euro2012 taking Italy in Euro Final that year, unfortunately, they lost heavily to Spain and they blamed Mario Balotelli, all his efforts to helped Italy to reach the Final fell on ungrateful hands. It’s very painful but we all have freedom of choice. This is just my opinion, not everyone opinion “
