Kolo Toure surplus to requirements at City


Bookmark and Share

By Gary-Jay Bourley

Sunday 22 July 2012

Roberto Mancini has opened the door for Kolo Toure to leave amid growing speculation that Turkish side Bursaspor are ready to bring the player to the Super Lig.



ESPN reports that the Manchester City manager has publicly announced that the Ivory Coast defender is free to leave should he wish to ply his trade elsewhere next season.


The Italian said: β€œIt is up to Kolo to decide if he wants to go to Bursaspor or not. However, can they meet his demands?”


Toure has had a up-and-down time since joining City in 2009. He was initially named captain by then manager Mark Hughes and was joined at the club by his younger brother Yaya Toure a year later. However, at the beginning of the 2010/11 campaign he was stripped of the captaincy by Mancini with the armband being given to Carlos Tevez.


In March of 2011 the 31-year-old was given a six-month ban by the anti-doping agency after failing a drugs test. Last season, a Premier League winning year, he only competed 14 times in the league.


Toure is thought now to be seeking a transfer abroad. Whilst Bursaspor are favourites to sign him, Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal have also shown an interest.
