Toure apologises for error in Liverpool draw

Kolo Toure has held his hands up for his mistake in Liverpool’s draw with West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, Sky Sports has reported.

Liverpool were a goal up at the Hawthorns through Daniel Sturridge before Toure’s attempted pass to Martin Skrtel, across his own goal, was intercepted by Victor Anichebe, who scored to level the scores at 1-1.

They stayed at 1-1 for the rest of the match with the point seeing Liverpool remain in fourth place, eight points behind leaders Arsenal who beat Crystal Palace later that day.

“It was a terrible pass by me,” Toure said. “You have to make the right decisions and I took a bad decision.

“It was my call. I should have passed to one of our players but instead I passed it straight to the striker. I just didn’t see him.

“I made a very bad pass. I don't know why I passed the ball into the middle of the pitch, it was crazy. I'm disappointed for me and the team. It's hard to take, especially for me, because we played well.

“When you make mistakes it's important to bounce back and play better. I've made a few mistakes in my life and I'm still learning every day. I will learn from this.”

Toure joined Liverpool from Manchester City on a free transfer at the end of last season. The Ivory Coast international won the title as part of the City team, having also claimed the trophy during his time at Arsenal.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers added: “I'll never criticise players for trying to play football but Kolo probably shouldn't have received the ball under pressure and his pass was misplaced.”
