(…) Sometimes when things went wrong, they said it was me responsible …
The brother of Kolo Touré goes further, he says he was the scapegoat in case of defeat “It was incredible. We fought for how many years to win the trophy? Losing in the final twice, and sometimes when things went wrong, they said it was me, the main player that made them lose all the time, and I was very, very disappointed, “ he said .
To show that he really lived through difficult times, the player compares his situation with that of Cristiano Ronaldo. “Cristiano Ronaldo, has never known that in his country. I think that with Samuel Eto’o it was going well, he was very beloved in his country. Me, it was worse. Everything that happened on this national team was imputed to me. It made me sad, I felt, I was the most hated person. I tried to show them that I love the country despite everything I’ve experienced. I promised my wife and family and friends to bring them a trophy [CAN] and I left, “ said Yaya Touré at the KweséESPN microphone
It should be noted that several fans did not hesitate to put in opposition, or to compare Yaya Touré and his teammate Didier Drogba, which undoubtedly ended up causing uneasiness within the team.
