Yaya Toure has made the switch back to Turkish football after agreeing to join Olympiakos. The former Manchester City and Barcelona midfielder spent one season at the club before going on to achieve a huge amount of success at the aforementioned clubs. Toure has revealed that he promised to return back to the Greek outfit when he left in 2006 and now he is delighted to be able to keep the promise. The midfielder was out of contract at the end of the campaign, but his future at Manchester City appeared bleak since Pep Guardiola did not consider the midfielder for a majority of the matches.
“When I left in 2006 I said I would come back and I am delighted to keep my word. I made my decision based on the special relationship I have with this incredible club. It is an honour to be back,” said Toure. 35 years of age, he may not be able to offer much to Olympiacos in terms of actual football, but he brings a huge amount of experience. In order to join the Greek outfit, he has decided to reject offers from across the world.
