[Sport] Yaya Toure speaks after joining Olympiacos

Manchester City legend, Yaya Toure has expressed delight after returning to Greek Super League club, Olympiacos.

The 35-year-old ended his free agency by signing a one-year contract with an option for another year with the Greek giants on Sunday.

The veteran midfielder left the Premier League champions at the end of the 2017/18 after eight years at the Etihad Stadium.

“It is an honour to be back at Olympiacos! When I left in 2006 I said I would come back and I am delighted to keep my word,” Toure told the club’s official website.

“I had offers from lots of clubs across Europe, Asia and the USA. Ultimately, I made my decision based on the special relationship I have with this incredible club.

“I am as hungry for success now as I was when I first arrived here many years ago and I cannot wait to help the club win the trophies the great fans of Olympiacos deserve.

“It is now time to let my football do the talking once again. Let’s do this!,” he said.

The Ivorian legend will hope to make his ‘second debut’ for Olympiacos when they host Asteros Tripolis in a Super League clash on Saturday.
