At 37 years old, Yaya Touré definitely does not want to put away his crampons. After Greece and China, the former midfielder of Manchester City could do another experience but this time in Brazil, the country of King Pelé.
In fact, Luiz Leven Siano, Vasco de Gama’s presidential candidate, has promised to bring the Ivorian to the club if he win the elections.
In a video posted on Instagram, Mr. Siano confirms to have obtained the agreement of the Elephant. “Welcome, Mr. Yaya Touré. Thank you for trusting our project for Vasco de Gama. It will be Vasco!” he said.
Besides, the same video shows Yaya Touré himself announcing his arrival in Brazil. “I would like to thank Leven for including me in this project. (…) I look forward to seeing all the Vasco fans very soon. It will be Vasco,” declared the former captain of the Elephants of Ivory Coast.
Announced for Botafogo, it is perhaps at Vasco de Gama that the former Barcelona player will land very soon.
