02 Sep Yaya returns to Olympiacos
Yaya Touré has signed for Greek giants Olympiacos – returning to the club he left in 2006.
The four time African footballer of the year had a number of offers over the summer, from all corners of the globe, but decided on a move to Greece and is determined to win more trophies with his new club.
The former Barcelona, Monaco and Manchester City star, said:
“It is an honour to be back at Olympiacos! When I left in 2006 I said I would come back and I am delighted to keep my word. I had offers from lots of clubs across Europe, Asia and the USA. Ultimately, I made my decision based on the special relationship I have with this incredible club.
“I am as hungry for success now as I was when I first arrived here many years ago and I cannot wait to help the club win the trophies the great fans of Olympiacos deserve.
“It is now time to let my football do the talking once again. Let’s do this!”
