Manchester City’s De Bruyne pays tribute to departing Yaya Toure


The midfielder will be ending his eight year-stay with City at the end of the term and the Belgian has praised his influence at the club

Manchester City’s midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has paid tribute to departing Yaya Toure, haling him for his impact during his time at the Etihad Stadium outfit.

The  34-year-old will be ending his eight-year stay with the Citizens at the end of the season. He joined the club in the summer of 2010 from Barcelona and played an influential role for the side, featuring in 229 games and scoring 59 goals.

The Cote d’Ivoire international won three Premier League titles, two League Cups, one FA Cup and Community Shield with City.

“I guess he was one of the players where the revolution started,” De Bruyne told Manchester Evening.

“He has had a lot of great games and won so many things here and he deserves a big farewell game from everybody.

“When I came here he was a big part – even this year when he didn’t play so often he has been a big part of it and a massive player.

“The way he has performed his entire career is impressive.”

The midfielder will be hoping to make his first league start for City when they clash with Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday.
