Premier League: Footballing brothers (4)

Kolo and Yaya - The Toure brothers

Football News

Ivory Coast pair Kolo and Yaya have taken a while to combine forces for club and country but they finally managed it in the summer of 2010 when Yaya joined his brother Kolo at Manchester City from Barcelona. 

An extremely talented pair who have bags of experience, pace and athleticism, both players have made themselves household names in the Premier League. 

While Yaya's impressive displays have talked about week-in week-out, brother Kolo has quietly got in with his business and is widely considered one of the most underrated defenders in the league. 

Yaya settled into English football immediately, topping off a fantastic debut season with the only goal of the game in City's FA Cup success in 2011 - ending the Citizens 35-year wait for a trophy. 

Largely due to older brother Kolo's drugs ban and now move to rivals Liverpool, the pair haven't enjoyed as much time as they'd have liked together but still enough to both warrant a Premier League winners medal when City famously won the title on the last day in the 2011/12 season.
