Former FC Barcelona and Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure, considered one of Africa's greatest ever exports for his exploits in Europe, has revealed what his pre-match superstition is.
The ex-Ivory Coast international spent many years at the top, mainly at the Citizens in England, where he became one of the most dominant midfielders in world football.
Prior to taking to the field, however, Toure believed his game was influenced by what he was doing in the dressing room, with something as simple as lacing up his footwear.
Asked on a recent talk show if he had any specific pre-match traditions that he followed on, the 36-year-old revealed he always put his left boot on first.
"My only one is I always start from my left leg," he told Amazon Prime's new show called Back Of The Net.
"I put the boot on first, and yeah, it I put it on the left leg (first), that's perfect.
"And after that, we're all good."
Toure is currently playing for Qingdao Huanghai in China, but is expected to leave the club for a new adventure elsewhere soon.
