Yaya Toure would relish Barcelona return
Tuesday 12 October 2010
Manchester City's midfield enforcer Yaya Toure says that he would relish the chance to return to former club Barcelona at some point in the future.
The 27-year-old Ivory Coast international left Barca in the summer to try his luck in England, having struggled to hold down a regular starting spot at the Camp Nou.
Toure was quoted as telling Radio Catalunya: “I will be back in Barcelona to play, not as a tourist. I want to return to Barcelona, because to leave was the hardest moment of my life.
“What I want are games, not sitting on the bench. I won everything there and needed other challenges. For me, Manchester City is a very nice challenge.
“This is a team that is not playing in the Champions League and that has not won any titles recently. Therefore, they are perfect for me.”
