Yaya Toure: 'Manchester City fans love me'

Yaya Toure says that Manchester City fans love him and hopes to repay their faith by winning the Champions League for them this season.

Yaya Toure believes that he is adored by Manchester City fans and would like to deliver a Champions League title to express his gratitude to them.

The midfielder came in for some criticism following his performance in the 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday, the latest in a series of mixed displays from the Ivorian.

However, Toure, who has helped the Citizens to four trophies since joining in 2010 - including two Premier League titles - is sure that the City fans love him despite his early-season form.

"I know the fans love me; they are always good to me," he told BBC Sport. "My target now is the Champions League. I want to win it for them."

The Premier League champions face Chelsea at the Etihad on Sunday.
