Football: Former Arsenal & Liverpool Player, Kolo Toure Named Ivory Coast Assistant Coach

Former Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City defender, Kolo Toure has been appointed as an assistant coach to the Ivory Coast national team. He will work under ex-Belgium coach Marc Wilmots, the Ivorian Football Federation (FIF) has announced.

The posting comes soon after the 36-year-old, who retired from playing in the summer, took up a role on the backroom staff of his last club Celtic.

Toure won the African Nations Cup as a player for the Ivory Coast in 2015. They will face Mali in their next World Cup qualifier on Friday. A statement from the FIF read: 

"He will take on the role of coach Marc Wilmots' assistant from the Mali-Cote d'Ivoire match of October 6, 2017."

Toure's bother Yaya, the Manchester City midfielder, tweeted: 

"Very happy to see my big bro Kolo is Cote d'Ivoire assistant coach. Excellent."
