Manchester City star, Yaya Toure and his agent Dimitri Seluk have agreed to donate £50,000 each to those affected by the suicide bomb attack at Manchester Arena on Monday night.
Twenty-two people lost their lives and a further 119 were injured in the atrocious attack with eight-year-old Saffie Roussos, 18-year-old Georgina Callander and 26-year-old John Atkinson among those killed.
A further 59 were taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after the bomber - named on Tuesday as 22-year-old Salman Abedi - entered the foyer and activated an improvised explosive device. 
According to the Manchester City Midfielder's agent, Seluk said 'Yaya and I want to help. We talked this morning about what happened and he asked me what he thought we could do.
'We have agreed to donate £50,000 each to help the victims of this terrible crime. It doesn't matter whether the victims are from Manchester or not. 
'Yaya is from Cote D'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), I am Russian. It doesn't matter. Today is a chance for those of us in football to help out.'

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was affected by the events at Manchester Arena with his wife and two daughters present at the Ariana Grande concert along with 21,000 other fans. All three escaped unharmed.
