Hold Up! I will announce my retirement personally and officially by myself – Yaya Toure

Ivorian Football Legend Yaya Toure has responded to reports that he has retired from football, with a brief message to debunk the claims.

Yaya, who last made an appearance in a competitive game for Olympiakos in October last year, declared he will take “new challenges in playing football.”

 


In a two page tweet on his official Twitter handle, Toure stated thus:

There has been a lot of confusion about my future recently. I want to make it clear here that I love football and I’m still in contention to play for a few more years. Yes, I’m starting to prepare myself for coaching badges but full time coaching is not what I’m thinking now. 1/2

I am now ready and focused to take new challenges in playing football!

And don’t worry once the time has come, I will announce my retirement personally and officially by myself!!

 

 

The 35 year-old was on broadcast duties on Sunday afternoon at the Amex Stadium, where his former club Manchester City wrapped up the premier league title with a 4-1 over Brighton.
