Yaya Touré’s Contract Terminated With Olympiacos After Three Months

Yaya Touré's time at Olympiacos has come to an abrupt end after the Greek club terminated his contract.

According to Sport24 Radio (via Marca), the former Manchester City star failed to impress manager Pedro Martins in the five matches that he played for the club in his second stint.

The 35-year-old Ivorian midfielder left City at the end of last season and signed for the Superleague Greece side in September.

The former Monaco and Barcelona player has picked up multiple titles across his club career, including the Champions League and three Premier League titles.

Touré also won the Africa Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast, as well as being named the African Footballer of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

He was a fan-favourite player during his time at City, though he slowly fell down the pecking order towards the end of his time with the club and it was coupled with a turbulent relationship with manager Pep Guardiola.

Earlier this year, Touré launched a scathing attack on the former Barcelona boss.

"He [Guardiola] insists he has no problems with black players, because he is too intelligent to be caught out," he told France Football (via the Guardian).

"But when you realise that he has problems with Africans, wherever he goes, I ask myself questions. He will never admit it.

"But the day he will line up a team in which we find five Africans, not naturalised, I promise I will send him a cake.

"Pep likes to dominate and wants to have obedient players who lick his hands. I do not like this kind of relationship. I respect my coach but I am not his thing.

"Like all players I have bickered with my coaches. But at a certain point men who do not understand each other reconcile.

"This is not possible with Pep, who is very rigid. The other players will never admit it publicly but some have already told me that they ended up hating him. Because he manipulates and plays a lot with your head."
