The Ivory Coast midfielder scored an incredible 20 goals in 35 Premier League appearances that season as City mounted a late surge to the title to deny Suarez and Liverpool in the final straight, but after his own impressive campaign, the individual award went to the Uruguay forward.
Sadly, he has become a peripheral figure this season and made less than ten league appearances, with Guardiola mostly choosing to leave his Rolls Royce parked in the garage. The Brighton game we will give him what he deserves, one of the most lovely farewells a player can receive.
A big-game player, a midfield machine and one of the most technically gifted footballers to play in English football. All the game we will be focused on winning the game against Brighton for Yaya, and we are going to try to do it for him.

But Guardiola said his influence extended far beyond simple on-field success.
It is said that immediately after winning the title, Guardiola gave a speech of gratitude to the club's staff and management, thanking them for their service and lauding them for being the best that he can have.
