Toure intends to play for two or three more years

Former Ivory Coast international Yaya Toure has made it clear that he intends to play for two or three more years despite terminating his contract with Olympiacos after five games.

Toure was unhappy with his role at Olympiacos and left the club after three months but he has no intentions of hanging his boots up at the age of 35.

“This is definitely not the end, I want to continue to play,” Toure told Sky Sports.

“I went to Olympiacos and I quit because I was not so happy, the mentality was very different. It was a bad choice.

“Maybe it was an emotional choice because I started there and wanted to give something back to the fans.

“I’m well known in the world and wanted to give something back, but when I got there it was not what I was expecting.”

Toure, who won three Premier League titles with Manchester City, was linked with a reunion with Manuel Pellegrini at West Ham but the Chilean has played down the possibility of signing the veteran.

“You never know, maybe the Premier League!” Toure said when asked where he wants to play next. “If it is possible I want to play one or two more years, we will see.

“With the new competition and the new mentality of the guys coming up I think a player could go on to 42 years old, but we will see.”
