Yaya Toure’s grand return to Olympiakos was made official over the weekend, with the Ivorian midfielder given a suitably rapturous welcome by fans of the Greek club.
Indeed, supporters crowded the streets outside the training ground to meet Toure, spiriting the former Man City man inside through a veil of flare smoke.
Toure also made an appearance on the pitch after Olympiakos’ 5-0 win over PAS Giannina on Sunday afternoon.
Details on the precise terms of the 35-year-old’s contract are still unclear, but he seems to be happy with whatever’s going on – and that’s the main thing..
It is an honour to be back at @olympiacos_org ! 😊
When I left in 2006 I said I would come back and I am delighted to keep my word. 🙌🏾
