Former Manchester City and Barcelona star, Yaya Toure have signed for Chinese second division club, Qingdao Huanghai six months after leaving his previous club Olympiacos FC in Greece.
Back in May 2019, Toure’s agent announced that the former Ivory Coast midfielder had retired from professional football, a claim which was later dismissed by the 36-year-old footballer.
After signing for Qingdao Huanghai FC in the Chinese League One, the second division of Chinese football, the footballer said:
“Since the start of my football career, I have always loved challenges and now I have decided to take this new challenge and make history once again with Qingdao Huanghai Football Club!” said the Premier League winner in a statement on his official website.
“This is a very exciting young club with a lot of potentials and we share the same philosophy – that is to play beautiful football! It will be my great honour to grow and succeed with this club,” he said.
