Toure wants to fight for Liverpool place

Kolo Toure wants to stay at Liverpool and fight for his place under Brendan Rodgers rather than move to Turkish side Trabzonspor, ESPN has reported.

It’s expected that Toure will play a reduced role this season at Anfield after the signing of Southampton centre-back Dejan Lovren and a move to Turkey has been mooted, with the Ivory Coast international also competing with Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho and Sebastian Coates.


But the veteran has told Press in the Ivory Coast that his preference would be to stay on Merseyside and prove his worth to Rodgers. “Trabzonspor are interested in me, but I am happy to be a Liverpool player - especially as the Coach reiterated his confidence in me for what I bring to the group,” Toure confirmed.


“There's a possibility that I may need to drop into a lesser league to earn more playing time, but I am a battler and I have decided to stay at Liverpool. It's true that things can change at any time,” he went on.


“For the moment, I repeat, I am at Liverpool and I hope to stay at the club. For now, Trabzonspor is a no. But in football, anything can happen.”


Toure moved to Liverpool from Manchester City last summer after his contract at the Etihad Stadium came to an end. He previously played for Arsenal, spending seven years with the Gunners before switching to City in 2009.


The 33-year-old has won two Premier League titles in his career, one each with Arsenal and City, as well as three FA Cups and helped the Reds finish second to City last season.
