Yaya Toure: Why It's The Right Time To Leave Manchester City

After lifting his third Premier League title on Sunday, African superstar Yaya Toure has revealed why he believes it is the right time for him to leave Manchester City.

The 34-year-old, who joined the English club from FC Barcelona in 2010, has spent eight seasons with the Citizens and will likely go down as a club legend, having helped them to eight trophies during his stay.

Toure, who has failed to start a single Premier League game so far this season, accepts that his future now needs to be elsewhere, and hopes the current crop of players will keep up the winning mentality.

"It's the first club where I've stayed for a long time," the Ivorian said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"After eight years of service, I think it's the right time to move on and let the kids continue to take the responsibility.

"I'm really happy, I'm delighted to be part of this football club, and they'll be looking forward to being strong next year, they've played fantastic football, and I hope there will be more of the same next year.

"I'm delighted (to have won three Premier League titles), to be honest. When you see all the trajectory over the course of the eight years I've been here, it's unbelievable. I'm very happy to be part of this football club."

Toure has made 315 appearances for City so far, scoring 79 goals and assisting a further 50 strikes.
