YayaToure retires from football. Good luck in your new stage.
Former Manchester City, Barcelona and Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure has retired from playing and will move into coaching, his agent has said.
The 35-year-old has not played since having his contract at Greek side Olympiakos terminated in December 2018.
He moved to Greece following his release by Manchester City last summer after winning three Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups.
“Yaya has decided to end his career as a champion,” agent Dimitri Seluk said.
Last month Toure told the BBC he had no immediate plans to retire from football and had not ruled out playing in the Middle East, United States or Asia.
But Seluk said: “The farewell match which Manchester City gave him was, in principle, the real end of his playing career, not only in that team, but in general.”
