On the Spot: Yaya Toure
There is one man that has been indispensable for Manchester City over the last four seasons. That player's name is Yaya Toure. He has been the engine behind City's first league title since 1968, their first FA Cup win since 1969, and their current status as Premier League juggernaut. His sturdy frame and fantastic athleticism allow him to do things on the field that most players don't even dream about. Yaya is a must-watch every Premier League weekend and midweek Champions League fixture.
His journey to becoming a Man City star has taken many stops along the way. Beginning in his home country of Ivory Coast, Toure has played for five other European teams (most notably Barcelona) before he signed with the Citizens. As far as individual awards, he's been named the African Footballer of the Year four consecutive times now. Toure is such a mainstay in the conversation of the best players on the planet, so we had to put him On the Spot on our blog, The Center Circle. We take a "tour" through his early career and recent accomplishments, his playing style and his life outside the game. Toure and Man City fans, check it out. [read all about Man City!]
