Kolo Toure Fails to Make History
Kolo Toure failure to create history by becoming the first player to win the Premier league title with three different teams after his Liverpool lost out to Manchester City in this year’s competition. Toure went into the final game of the season against Newcastle with an opportunity to win the league title with Liverpool. He has already lifted the league title with Arsenal and Manchester city in the past. After having joined Liverpool only in the summer on a free transfer, the title would have been a crowning glory to the season.
As it is, City are now the champions after they managed to finish two points above Liverpool, who practically threw away the title in the 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace. Despite this disappointment, the defender has stated that he is confident that the club will learn from their mistakes this season and comeback stronger next season. Despite missing out on the title, Liverpool can revel in the fact that they have made a return to the Champions League group stages as result of the second place finish. More importantly, they need not have to go through the play-offs in order to get to the stage.
Liverpool managed a spectacular run of 13 victories since the start of the New Year.
"I think we did everything we could and at the end City won it. The most important thing was that we have been fighting until the end. We will learn from the mistakes we made and next year we will be better. Nobody expected us to be where we are, but we lacked a little bit of experience and that is why I think we will gain experience. We will gain experience by making those mistakes and losing the title like we did,” said the former Arsenal defender.
