International

Toure To Leave City

Kolo Toure admits he is frustrated by Manchester City after going nearly two months without his contract negotiations being finalised and has thus confirmed he will be leaving the club.

The Ivorian international is sick and tired of waiting for the club to come to the table with a legitimate offer and is now ready to make the move, but confesses he wants to stay in England because he has made the country his home.

Toure joined the Manchester club in 2009, where he was a regular in the first team set-up for the first couple of years during his tenure at the Etihad, but has since struggled for game time under Roberto Mancini which is lending to his departure.

“I have been here for nearly four years, and two fantastic years when I have been playing a lot and I hear my songs with Yaya,” said Toure.

“I will miss those things, for me my family is here, my kids are at school and they like the area - but in two months nothing has come from the club and I am thinking about my future definitely.”

The 32-year-old has been linked with moves to both Italy and France, but he insists he wants to remain in England.

“My first choice is this country, as I like English football - that is why I began playing football," added Toure.

“After Ivory Coast I came here, I don't know any other culture and it is important for me to stay here, I have been here for ten-years.”
