Unlike Zabaleta, whose departure after nine years was announced on Saturday, Toure - a driving force in City's midfield since 2010 - doesn't yet know if this is his last season at City.

"No - maybe you have more experience than me and can explain to me how it's more hard here than in Germany, Spain and Italy, " he said.

Guardiola also called on City fans to help the team against West Brom - and to give Pablo Zabaleta a fitting send-off.

Zabaleta: "I love this club.

I arrived at this club and I tried to do my best, some managers will have that pressure so I have to handle that, if not I go home", Guardiola said at a news conference. "Now we are there every year, but we have to try and be better next season".

Pablo Zabaleta relives his favourite moments at Manchester City as he prepares to bid farewell to the club.

"I remember at that time [Sir Alex] Ferguson and the 'noisy neighbours, ' and this is something that I have been since that time!"

"I've been so lucky to play alongside great players.it was an absolute privilege". Nine years here is incredible and to replace that you need someone to stay here nine years.
