Man City Suspend Kolo Toure


    Manchester City’s Ivory Coast international defender Kolo Toure has been suspended after failing a drugs test, his club announced on Thursday.

    A statement on City’s official website read: “Manchester City confirm that the FA has informed Kolo Toure that an ‘A-sample’ provided by him has tested positive for a specified substance.

    “As result of this, he has been suspended from participating in all first team and non-first team matches pending the outcome of the legal process.

    “There will be no further comment from the football club at this stage.”

    Toure, who turns 30 later this month, signed for City from Arsenal for £14mn (16.3mn euros) in 2009.

    He was City’s captain before Carlos Tevez and has 85 international caps to his name.
