Yaya Sent Off After 10 Seconds

In what was his last appearance for his club and maybe his final match as a professional footballer, African legend Yaya Toure was sent off after just 10 seconds following a moment of madness this past weekend.

The former Manchester City midfielder celebrated yet another trophy win on Saturday after claiming the China League One title with Qingdao Huanghai.

His final game for the team was a disappointing one, however, as he was given his marching orders less than a minute into their clash against Nantong Zhiyun for strangely kicking out an opponent off the ball.

The Sun reported that VAR was consulted before the match official in charge handed Toure his red card in what many believe might have been his last match as a footballer.

Toure did, however, recently claim he does not have plans to retire just yet, and also confirmed he will be on the hunt for a new challenge after helping Qingdao win the league and secure promotion to the Chinese Super League.

The 36-year-old is widely considered one of Africa's finest exports ever, having enjoyed trophy-laden spells at both FC Barcelona and City.

Do you think Toure still has more to offer at the highest level? Let us know in the comments section below.
