Olympiacos FC and Yaya Toure part ways

Former Ivory Coast international Yaya Toure is no longer a player of Olympiacos FC, who announced their separation on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old midfielder joined the Greek club four months ago after his departure from Manchester City.

He had a one-year stint at Olympiacos in the 2005 / 2006 season before signing for French club Monaco.

“Olympiacos FC and Yaya Touré would like to announce to the fans that they have mutually agreed to end their cooperation,” the club said in a statement.

“Yaya is and remains an important member of the Olympiacos family, who has marked a central part of the history of the club. Olympiacos would like to thank him for everything he has offered to the Club.”

Toure also plied his trade at the Camp Nou where he won the UEFA Champions League with FC Barcelona in 2008/09.

The four-time African Footballer of the Year captained the Elephants of Ivory Coast to clinch the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations held in Equatorial Guinea.
