Former Cote d’Ivoire International captain, Yaya Toure has denied retirement reports from his agent saying he is “still in contention to play for a few more years”.

On Friday, Toure’s agent, Dimitri Seluk said he had “decided to end his career as a champion”.

The former Barcelona and Manchester City midfielder has not played since having his contract at Greek side Olympiakos terminated in December 2018.

However, in another post the four-time African best player denied his retirement news, saying; “There has been a lot of confusion about my future recently.

“I want to make it clear here that I love football and I’m still in contention to play for a few more years. Yes, I’m starting to prepare myself for coaching badges but full-time coaching is not what I’m thinking now.”

He further wrote on Twitter;

“I am now ready and focused to take new challenges in playing football. And don’t worry, once the time has come I will announce my retirement personally and officially by myself.”
