The City midfielder appeared to be the target of monkey-chanting from a section of the home support during City's 2-1 win in Group D of the competition at the Khimki Arena.

City have confirmed they intend to make a formal complaint to UEFA over the matter.

Manuel Pellegrini: "I didn't know what happened.

"There were some shouts against our player, it is a pity that we still have those stupid things.

"But I hope the right message can be put out for Yaya and Manchester City.

"I cannot answer the question about how Yaya is feeling as I haven't spoken to Yaya, so I cannot say anything about that."
