Former Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool defender Kolo Toure returns to the Premier League to become an assistant to Brendan Rodgers at Leicester.

Recall, on the eve, Rodgers left his work at Celtic and signed a contract with Leicester until 2022. Brendan took 37-year-old Toure from Glasgow as well.

Toure met with Rodgers back at Liverpool, then followed him to Celtic. In September of 2017, Kolo announced the end of his playing career, after which he became an assistant to Brendan at the Scottish team.

Toure has tremendous experience – 354 Premier League matches and over 100 fights for the Ivory Coast national team. Last summer, Kolo was part of his national team coaching staff at the World Cup in Russia.
