Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure wants Greek outfit Olympiacos to knock Manchester United out of the Champions League this evening, reports The Manchester Evening News

Toure, who suffered European heartbreak against Spanish giants Barcelona last week, wants to see his former side inflict more pain on David Moyes' side. 

Manchester United hit rock bottom against Liverpool this past weekend as they were beaten 3-0 by Brendan Rodgers' side. 

And now the Red Devils have a mountain to climb if they are to secure a place in the quarter finals of the Champions League.

Moyes' side head into tonight's clash 2-0 down against their Greek opponents, and Toure is hoping his former club can get the job done.

Speaking to gazetta.gr, Toure said: "Olympiacos is always in my heart!

"Olympiacos are having a great year, a good season. They can get past United. It will be a tough rematch in Manchester. I know United well and, although they are not at their best, they are a very experienced team.

"But I back Olympiacos. If they work hard, they have the skill to do it. It would be a great success to achieve qualification."

The Ivorian international also revealed that he would like to head back to Greece in the future and would consider a coaching role in a number of years time. 

He finished by saying: "I wish all the best for the next stage and for this year and every year. Also, I wish I could go back back to Greece one day.

"Who knows what will happen? Maybe I will be a coach in ten years from now!"

Toure will certainly be keeping a close eye on the proceedings at Old Trafford tonight as Manchester United look to keep their season alive.
