Kolo Toure has said that he would continue playing for Manchester City in the upcoming season and he is not going to leave the club before the completion of his contract. Toure’s contract with Manchester City would get completed at the end of this season. There have been rumors that the Turkish Club Bursaspor has shown some interest in Toure and the Ivorian defender might take a transfer this summer. But, Toure has denied all these reports and said that he is fully committed to City at the moment.
Toure joined Manchester City in 2009 on a contract of 4 years. In his very first season for City, he was assigned the role of captaincy by Mark Hughes, who was the manager of City at that time. Toure’s first goal for City was against Fulham in a match of the League Cup. Manchester City performed decently in the 2009-10 season. But, when Roberto Mancini became the manager of City in 2010, he removed Toure as captain and appointed Carlos Tevez as the new captain of the club. However, Toure continued to feature for the first team of City in the 2010-11 season as well. In the last season, he wasn’t able to play in some matches due to the national duties. But, he was back for the later part of the season. He played 14 matches for City in the last season and he was one of the main contributors in City’s win in the Champions League.
On being asked about the Champions League victory in the last season, Toure said that it was something special. The players had been trying to win this title for so long and eventually they achieved it in the last season. That was an emotional moment for the whole team.
