Toure wants to see out career with City

by Michelle Fortune , 13 December 2012

Yaya Toure believes there are "many more chapters to be written" in Manchester City's history and he wants to be a part of that by spending the rest of his career at the Etihad Stadium.


Toure joined City in the summer of 2010 and is a crucial figure in Roberto Mancini's side, helping the side end their 44-year wait for the Premier League title last season.

With one league medal to his name, the midfielder is keen to add to his tally and believes remaining at City is the best way to achieve that.

“I would love to end my career here. Nobody knows what the next step is in football and I believe that if you stop dreaming, you should stop playing football, but this is where I want to be," he told City's official website.

“When I first arrived at City, every time I went to sleep I would dream about us winning something and about us being the best team in whatever competition we take part in.

“I believe I have to work harder all the time to improve and stay at the top level with this club. I will give my all every time I play and I will never forget how the fans have treated me here so nothing would give me greater pleasure than to finish my career as a Manchester City player.”

He has yet to reach the heights of last season but Toure is determined to get better to convince the club he belongs there to help challenge for more trophies.

“We want to make history and that was part of my plan when I first signed – to make history – and we’ve made a start but there is so many more chapters to be written,” he added.

“I’m really enjoying my football here and I’m playing in front of the most amazing fans I’ve ever come across.

“Ending my playing career at City would be unbelievable, but I know it won’t be easy because we want to win everything and the Club is always looking to improve.

“There is no other place I would rather finish with and I want to continue winning titles and trophies with City. I believe we are just at the beginning of our journey.”
