Published Add your comment

Manchester City defender Kolo Toure has been suspended for six months after testing positive for a specified substance earlier this season.

However Toure will be available for his club in September as the ban begins from March 2, the date of the start of his provisional suspension.

Toure is also to be target-tested for a period of two years, following an independent regulatory commission hearing convened at Wembley on Thursday by the Football Association.
