Yaya Toure Is Training With League Two Side Leyton Orient

Yaya Toure Is Training With League Two Side Leyton Orient

Much to the confusion of absolutely everybody, Yaya Toure is training with League Two outfit Leyton Orient.

The O's posted pictures of the legendary Ivorian midfielder wearing their training attire this morning and even the Twitter admin was shocked at having a three-time Premier League and one-time Champions League winner at their Chigwell training ground.

When Yaya Toure Was The Best Midfielder In World Football

published at7 months ago

Now 37, Toure was last playing for Qingdao Huanghai in China and was sent off 10 seconds into his most recent appearance for the club back in November.

He's still contracted to the club, who achieved promotion to the Chinese Super League last term.

It's believed that Toure is training with Orient for the next couple of weeks in order to keep his fitness up, so sadly there's next to no chance of him actually lining up at Brisbane Road.

After a trophy-laden spell at Barcelona, Toure cemented himself as a Manchester City and Premier League great with 62 goals and 32 assists in eight seasons in English football.

It was in that first season under Manuel Pellegrini where we well and truly saw the best of him. Toure, playing in a midfield two alongside Fernandinho for the duration of the campaign, scored 20 Premier League goals (10 of which were free-kicks) and registered 9 assists for his teammates in 35 outings.
