Interview with Yaya Touré

By Peter Alegi | January 20th, 2012 2 Comments



With the African Nations Cup about to kick off this weekend in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, it’s time to put the spotlight on Yaya Touré, the Ivorian international and Man City midfielder. In this part of a longer interview produced by his new endorser — Puma, an expanding commercial force in African football — the best-paid player in the English Premier League reflects on growing up in Ivory Coast, learning the game in Bouake, and then moving to big-time football in Abidjan.

Thanks to Tom McCabe for telling me about this interview.

with all due respect to the Black Stars and The Elephents, methinks its Chipolopolo who will be the last team standing

Senegal – Zambia today is a very interesting game — curious to see if Mohlomi turns out to be right about Chipolopolo . . .
