Toure leaves Olympiakos

Former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has left Olympiakos Piraeus by mutual agreement, just three months after rejoining the Greek Super League club.

Toure, who was released by City after a limited role last season, chose to join the Piraeus club where he won the domestic double in the 2005-06 season. However, his second spell ended after just five appearances.

Toure, 35, joined Barcelona in 2007 and won two La Liga titles and the Champions League in 2009. He moved to City in 2010, where he won three EPL titles, two League Cups and the FA Cup. - REUTERS
