Toure vows to lead title charge

Next Story

Manchester City defender Kolo Toure has vowed not to hide as the Barclays Premier League title battle intensifies.

As an experienced player and a past winner with Arsenal, Toure believes he has a duty to his team-mates to guide them through the closing weeks of the season. City lead the table by two points with 11 games remaining and Toure could have a key role to play, particularly in the short term with influential captain Vincent Kompany out with a calf injury.

He said: "I am there for that. We have a big squad and every time the manager needs a player to step up and give his best, we have to do it. For me, I will give 100%, like I usually do. I am more angry than ever after all the difficult time I had. I just want to play and play well for my team."
