Manchester City will make an official complaint to UEFA about the racist abuse aimed at Yaya Toure during the Champions League clash with CSKA Moscow.

Manchester City will make an official complaint to UEFA after Yaya Toure was subjected to racist abuse during their Champions League clash at CSKA Moscow.

The Premier League outfit won the game 2-1, but the match was marred by 'monkey chants' from the home support, aimed at the Ivory Coast international.

"It's a pity and I hope we have the right measures," Sky Sports News quotes City manager Manuel Pellegrini as saying.

City officials are said to have spoken to UEFA's match delegate after the game, and will put in a written complaint upon their return to England.
