Manchester City Renamed Training Pitch After Yaya Toure  

Manchester City have renamed a training pitch after departing midfielder Yaya Toure, who will leave the Citizens after eight years at the club, having netted 59 times for his side.

City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has unveiled a mosaic next to the academy pitch which is now dedicated to the Ivorian midfielder.

However, when Toure was asked if he intends to stay in the Premier League, he said “Yes, because of my family. My kids, for me, are British. They go to school here, they have a lot of friends in Manchester. Manchester is their town.

“I would never celebrate a goal against City. I don’t want to face them, but if I want to stay in the Premier League, I’ll have to.” He added.
