Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure, says he was not surprised by his recall to the first team after ending his three-month exile with both goals in Saturday’s two- one win at Crystal Palace.

The football player, was a shock selection at Selhurst Park for his first Premier League game this season.

Toure, a two-time Premier League title winner with City, had been out in the cold at the club since the end of August.

City manager Pep Guardiola had said he he would not be picked until his agent, Dimitri Seluk, apologised for comments he made when Toure was left out of City’s Champions League squad.

Toure said sorry on Seluk’s behalf at the start of November but there had been no indication from Guardiola that his situation had changed, and few people even knew he was in the City squad that traveled to south London.

He was given a noisy reception by the travelling City fans, who chanted his name throughout the game, and his efforts were also appreciated by his team-mates, who clapped him back into the dressing room at the final whistle
