How old was Yaya Toure when you first saw him play and did he stand out – technically or physically - then ? Who first told you about him and what did they say ?
Yaya came to the Academy in 1996 between 12 and 13 years. I have noticed during a match between a team of district called" The Unconditional " in which he played and the Academy team.
