Kolo Toure with Liverpool will end his Time soon
Kolo Toure’s time at Liverpool may be coming to an end at the end of this campaign after the defender suggested that he could be looking at the managerial career in the near future.
The former Arsenal and Manchester City defender is out of contract at the end of the season. However, it is understood that he has been offered only a 12 month extension whereas the player is looking for a two year deal. Toure was on the verge of leaving for a Turkish club in the summer after falling out with Brendan Rodgers in the second half of last season.
The duo appeared to have patched up the differences, as Toure has found himself regularly called up for first-team action as a backup for the likes of Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren. A player of immense experience in the Premier League,Toure is looking forward to a coaching career. He has revealed that he has already begun work for getting the coaching badges. The 33-year-old only recently called time on his international career after managing to win the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast. This was his first major honour with the international team in his long career. He may decide to end his club career at this stage as well.
“It is an ambition of mine to be a manager.I am doing my UEFA B badge right now but it takes time. I am focused on my game because I want to stay playing football for a few years.As an African, we need to have more African coaches because we need to take that responsibility.When you play at this level for big clubs you need to show that. Where? Maybe here, maybe back in Africa but I need to do something in football because that is what I love,” said Kolo Toure.
