How I Was Treated Like A “Slave” – Kolo Toure’s Maid

FOOTIE ace Kolo Toure’s maid told last night how she was treated like a “slave” — working up to 16 hours a day on less than the national minimum wage.

Alice Sawyer, 30, was so terrified of the Liverpool star’s wife that she fled. The home help claimed Toure, 35, witnessed some of her torment but never put a stop to it.
