Toure set for City return

"I just want to show them and that's what I will do."

Manchester City defender Kolo Toure is set to return to football this coming weekend following a six-month ban for taking dieting pills that contained the banned substance bendroflumethiazide.

The 30-year-old Ivorian is hopeful of returning to City’s match day squad for Saturday’s game against Wigan and is keen to rove his critics wrong.

“I feel 24, 25 years old. I want to show all the people that think Kolo Toure needed tablets, water tablets, to be a better footballer,” he told City TV.

“I just want to show them and that's what I will do.

“I will give 100% in every single game to show those people I don't need water tablets to be a strong man.

“I've been in this league for almost 10 years now, being unbeatable with Arsenal, doing a lot of good games.

“I just want to show them.”

Toure’s ban meant that he was ineligible to join in with City’s training sessions until last month, but he has trained alone taking just one week off throughout his ban.

“Sometimes when you come every day to training you can't realize how big it is to be a footballer,” Toure added.

“I just realized how much we are lucky to be footballers and be able to play for a football team like City.

“To be able to come back and train with the team, come into the training ground, it's great.”
