Kolo Toure’s contract is expiring and it would seem his Liverpool career will do the same. According to the Liverpool ECHO he will not be offered a new deal.
Since his arrival on Merseyside he has become fan favourite due to his infectiously happy manner. The Ivorian has been a star performer since coming into replace Mamadou Sakho who has been suspended for substance abuse.
He has made 72 appearances across three seasons and has admitted he is unsure where his future lies but remaining with Jürgen Klopp’s side would please him greatly.
“I don’t know (about my future) to be honest,” he said.
“We will see what will happen and you will have to ask that question to the manager.
“Of course I want to stay. It’s a great club to play in, but the manager has his plan and any decision I will respect.
“He is a top manager and he knows what he is doing.
“I am just enjoying my time in this club – a fantastic club and fantastic supporters.”
Saying goodbye to Kolo Toure will be almost as difficult as saying goodbye to some of the legends who have left the club in recent years. He has become one with the people and much like Sakho is as much a scouser as one can be without actually being a scouser.
We wish you all the best Kolo. You’ll Never Walk Alone.
