Toure is eyeing Mzansi


Former Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure (below) is said to be interested in starting his coaching career in South Africa when he gets his badges. A source has revealed that South Africa is Toure’s favoured place to begin his career on the touchline because of the competitiv­eness of the league and how local teams are starting to show their mettle in continenta­l football. “He is currently doing courses and he knows it will not be easy to crack it in Europe before he has had some experience. He sees South Africa as the ideal country to sharpen his skills and will be open to offers should any team need him,” said a source.
