Yaya Toure admits he feels "guilty and confused" about having to leave to play in the Africa Cup of Nations next month.

Toure is required by the Ivory Coast for the tournament, which starts in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea on January 21.

The Manchester City midfielder is quoted in several newspapers as saying: "Our country needs people like me and Didier Drogba at the moment. There is a war again and it's important we do what we can for our people. It is dangerous and people are afraid."
