Yaya Toure said he feels reborn after returning from exile to play a key role in Manchester City’s Premier League title challenge.
Toure, 33, appeared destined to leave City after being frozen out by manager Pep Guardiola earlier in the season. However, the Ivorian midfielder has enjoyed a remarkable renaissance over the past six weeks.
“I look like a kid, just enjoying playing and helping my teammates and the fans. It’s very important to me,” Toure said.
“I’m used to winning Premier Leagues, and I think it’s second two times. I want to win another. I know it’s going to be tough, but we have to keep going because Chelsea is very good this year.”
