Yaya Toure, the former midfield maestro of Manchester City, has bid farewell to Tottenham Hotspur as he announces his departure from the club.

The Ivorian, who transitioned into coaching after his illustrious playing career, joined Tottenham last season while working towards his coaching badges and was eventually named the U16s coach within their esteemed academy.

Toure also took the opportunity to thank everyone at the Tottenham Hotspur Academy for their support during his 18-month tenure, with a special mention to Dean Rastrick, Chris Powell, and all the young players.

Toure’s coaching journey began with Ukrainian side Olimpik Donetsk and Russian team Akhmat Grozny before his arrival at Tottenham. Although his departure from Spurs may not come as a surprise, as it was widely understood that his position was intended to be a stepping stone towards advancing his managerial career.

Having joined Manchester City from Barcelona in 2010, Yaya Toure left an indelible mark on English football, making over 300 appearances for the club, scoring an impressive 79 goals, and providing 49 assists.

With his playing days now behind him, Toure embarks on a new chapter in his career, determined to replicate his success as a coach. His move to Standard Liege represents another significant step forward on his journey toward establishing himself as one of the top managers in football.

Toure’s departure may leave a void within the club, but it also serves as a testament to the strength and reputation of their academy, which has once again proven its ability to attract and nurture top coaching talents.
