After leaving Manchester City in the summer of 2018, Yaya Toure joined Greek club, Olympiacos and spent just one spell at the club. He went on to attain his coaching licence and practice in that line.
Toure has previously held coaching positions at Ukrainian club Olimpik Donetsk and Russian side Akhmat Grozny, leaving the latter in June 2021. He served as an assistant coach in the Ukrainian club, offering his services to head coach, Ihor Klymovskyi in the dugout. This career path is similar path to that of his brother, Kolo, who is an assistant to Brendan Rodgers at Leicester City and the Ivorian national team.
Toure also joined Russian Premier League club, Akhmat Grozny, as assistant manager in the summer of 2021. He joined after just spending 4 months in his position in Ukraine. He worked under head coach Andrey Talalev at Akhmat Grozny.
Toure has been handed a full-time position after initially joining the club on a part-time basis in December. Spurs have helped the former City player undertake his coaching badge and he is set to be handed charge of his own age-group team as part of an organised academy staff.
Former Manchester City and Anderlecht coach Simon Davies has also taken up the role of head of methodology in the academy at Hotspur Way.
