Kolo And Yaya Toure Do The 'Kolo Kolo, Yaya Yaya' Dance During Farewell Party

Kolo And Yaya Toure Do The 'Kolo Kolo, Yaya Yaya' Dance During Farewell Party

Yaya Toure announced last week that this will be his last season with the club after eight years of service.

The 34-year-old played his final home game for the club against Brighton on Wednesday night and to celebrate his successful career at the Etihad, City hosted a farewell party for the Ivorian midfielder.

To put his spell at the club into perspective, he made 316 appearances, scoring 82 goals in that time frame. So a decent send off was a must.

In perhaps the best moment of the night, Yaya's brother, Kolo, made a surprise guest appearance to those who stayed behind at the Etihad.

Then, at the end of the speech, fans chanted the classic 'Kolo, Kolo, Yaya, Yaya' song as they danced in the middle of the pitch. It was a fitting end to a great spell in Manchester.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany then gave a rousing speech about the Ivory Coast international, reeling off the games he was such a big influence in throughout the years.
