Kolo Toure is one of the most experienced defenders in the premier league and the stability he brings to the Liverpool defense when he is on the pitch is undeniable that is why Liverpool would be glad the Ivorian has extended his stay at the club.
The former Arsenal and Manchester City man pledged his future, at least for the next one season to Liverpool. Kolo was quite excited to be sealing a new deal with the club and would be hoping to help the club achieve far beyond 6th position next season. “Liverpool is a great club for me to stay at. Liverpool is going to be massive. I love Premier League football and I played all my years here and if I can finish here it would be great,” Toure recently told reporters. “My kids go to school here and they are half-English, and that is important as well. I play for Liverpool right now, and I am very happy. If it was to carry on, I’d be more than happy.” Liverpool would go through some changes in the summer but they have moved quickly to highlight Toure as part of their plans.
At the end of the new contract, Kolo Toure would be 36, a ripe age to either retire or move to the Middle East or MLS.
