KoloToure is optimistic despite being a substitute player
At the age of 35, almost every football player out there is thinking about hanging up their playing boots but KoloToure is a completely different story as the Ivorian defender recently spoke about his current situation in the Scottish outfit Celtic FC.
KoloToure joined Celtic FC back on July of 2016 but he has struggled trying to snatch a spot in the first team and become a first-team player.
"I am still fighting for a place. I still feel very good and for me to keep playing is very important. In my mind, I am still a player, but, of course, I have the opportunity to learn from Brendan Rodgers, who is, for me, one of the best managers in the world." KoloToure said.
The head coach of Celtic FC, Brendan Rodgers prefers utilizing the services of JozoSimunovic and Erik Sviatchenko as his main defenders while KoloToure has had to settle with a place on the sidelines with only getting a few appearances in the first-team on a few matches.
Even though KoloTourehas been playing a substitute role since joining Celtic in 2016, the Ivorian player has the upmost of respect towards Brendan Rodgers and even praised the 44 year old Northern Irish manager as Toure flattered and also talked about his situation involving him becoming a coach in the near future.
"He is a great manager and a great guy to learn from. I have my 'B' license and I’m looking forward to doing my 'A' license. I started the 'B' license when I was at Liverpool.My thinking right now is to keep learning as a coach, but, of course, I still want to play." Celtic’s KoloToure said.
KoloToure is working towards becoming a manager and has already earned his B license which was given to him back when the Ivorian performer was in Liverpool.
