Yaya Toure, former Manchester City and Ivory Coast player has been appointed assistant coach of Ukrainian club, Olimpik Donetsk.

Toure recently worked with Championship clubs Queens Park Rangers and Blackburn Rovers as part of training towards his coaching qualifications.

He told Olimpik Donetsk’s official website, “I started my professional career in Donetsk – now I am here to start my coaching path.”

“Of course I know that Olimpik is not Metalurh, but I remember well how friendly and open the people of Donetsk were. I am very impressed by the local people.

“To be honest, even my agent was surprised when he found out I wanted to learn to coach in Ukraine, but I was firm in my decision.

“It is not so easy to find a place where (you) can calmly, without unnecessary pressure, study, and where you will be accepted as a friend.”

He added: “I am confident I can be useful for the Olimpik players, as a professional and a friend. To suggest something, share your knowledge and vision of football.”

Toure will work under head coach Igor Klimovsky.
