Toure hails City strength

BY foxsports • November 8, 2011

The Ivory Coast star has been in brilliant form in recent weeks, with City also in commanding mood; they sit on top of the Premier League, unbeaten and five points clear. And Toure now says that City are equipped to take English football by storm because they have such strength in depth. "We have more than one team now - we have got two teams," he insisted. "If you see the team that beat Wolves 5-2 in the Carling Cup, people said it was the second team. "For me, it is not the second team because everybody is good enough to play. "The team that played against Wolves in the league at home won 3-1, but it was difficult. We have got two teams now that can both play in the Champions League. "We have got a fantastic squad and everybody is improving. For me it is amazing. "I came here because I wanted to make history. I want to be part of history at this club. "For me it's the most important thing. We try not to think about going unbeaten, because the Premier League's not easy and other teams will try to beat us. "We have tough, tough games and coming up in a couple of weeks we have Liverpool, Newcastle at home, Arsenal and after that we play Chelsea. "It will be very difficult but we hope we'll continue unbeaten." Despite City's dominance, Toure insisted that they were still some way short of his former club Barcelona. "Honestly I think we are far away. Barcelona are an amazing club with a fantastic squad," he said. "I think most of the best players in the world are already there - Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique, Dani Alves. "They are a fantastic squad. To become like them, we have to work hard and we have to win some trophies. We will continue to work hard to become like them."
