Man City shocked after Kolo Toure failing drug test

Posted on | March 4, 2011 | No Comments

Man City Kolo Toure will miss at least the rest of the season after failing drug test.

Kolo Toure is known as a peaceful player who only does his job and who is not even drinking alcohol.  The 29 years old defender believes that the substance found in his body comes from a  medicine he might took.

Anyway he will probably be suspended from three to nine months even if the court will find out that he took the forbidden substances without knowing that are not legal.

Kolo Toure made a great partnership in defence with Kompany and he was awarded as vice-captain of the team and this suspension will definitely hurt City.

The Ivorian came at City from Arsenal for a sum of around £16 millions as since then he was a key member of the team.

Toure joins a selected list of players who were found positive for illegal substances as Maradona, Mark Bosnich, Willie Johnson, Adrian Mutu, Abel Xavier and many others.
