It must be said that the rich career of the former Ivorian international has marked several football personalities including Samuel Eto’o. The ex-pichichi, wanting to pay tribute to his former teammate of FC Barcelona, suggested to the CAF (Confederation of African Football) to find a way to celebrate the Ivorian environment.
“I will suggest to the President of CAF to find a way to celebrate Yaya Touré. He wrote one of the most beautiful stories in African football. I hope that he will make the right decision and that he will continue to please us. ” , He wished.
While Samuel Eto’o has retired for a few months, he wants to see Yaya Touré still happy and to give pleasure to his fans by playing for a few more seasons. The Cameroonian interviewed by Doucet on Canal + recognized that the Elephant deserves 2 to 3 titles of best player in the Premier League and at least one Golden Ball.
“Let him stop his career like that? It is not possible ! It makes everything it touches easy. It was not recognized at its fair value. He could have been for 2 or 3 years the best player in England or even win a European gold ball. But that was not the case and that did not change his immense talent. ” , he adds.
