Man City Immortalised Its Departing Veteran Midfielder, Yaya Toure
Manchester City have immortalised its departing veteran midfielder, Yaya Toure, by renaming a training pitch after him.
However, Yaya Toure will leave the Citizens after eight years at the club, having netted 59 times for his side.
City chairman, Khaldoon Al Mubarak yesterday also unveiled a mosaic next to the academy pitch which is now dedicated to the Ivorian midfielder.
When asked if he intends to stay in the Premier League, Toure responded “Yes, because of my family. My kids, for me, are British. They go to school here, they have a lot of friends in Manchester. Manchester is their town.
“I would never celebrate a goal against City. I don’t want to face them, but if I want to stay in the Premier League, I’ll have to.”
