Yaya Toure parts ways with Olympiakos after three months

Yaya Toure - Olympiakos

Former Barcelona and Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has parted ways with Greek club Olympiakos after just three months.

This followed the termination of the 35-year-old Ivorian’s contract by “mutual agreement” according to a statement.

“Olympiakos and Yaya Toure would like to announce to the fans that they have mutually agreed to end their cooperation,” the club noted a statement.

“Yaya is leaving as a friend and the doors at Olympiakos will always be open for him. Our paths will surely cross again.”

It should be remembered that Toure reunited with Olympiakos where he spent the 2005/06 season in September as a free agent after leaving Premier League champions Man City, where he won three league titles between 2010 & 2018.

While on his second spell in Greece, the 2009 Champions League winner with Barcelona made just two starts and two substitute appearances in Athens.

During his first stint at the club, Toure helped Olympiakos to a domestic double in 2006 before leaving to join French side Monaco and then to Barcelona in 2007.
