Cape Town - Yaya Toure snubbed his current Manchester City teammates after being asked to select his best eleven players.

The Manchester City and Ivory Coast star was asked by his current club to select a team and duly responded by not selecting a single Manchester City player, instead loading his side with players from his former club, Barcelona.

Toure selected five Barcelona players, along with four Real Madrid players. Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund) and Bastian Schweinsteiger were the only two players outside of La Liga to be picked by Toure.

Yaya Toure's best XI (via mcfc.co.uk):

Manchester City travel to the Nou Camp to face Barcelona, down 2-1 from the first leg, on Wednesday for a place in the last 8 of the Champions League.

The match kicks off at 21:45.
