Yaya Toure spent three years at the Camp Nou

stadium. Even though it was a rather short period, the

Ivorian appears to remain a die-hard Blaugrana.

When asked on his five best teammates, Toure

proudly named five Barcelona legends.

Marca quote the Ivorian as saying: “The best five

players I’ve played with? Messi, Henry, Eto’o, Iniesta

and Xavi. In that era, they were unbeatable.”

Toure also picked Camp Nou as his favourite

stadium, adding: “I’m grateful for that era of my life.”

In the same interview, Toure confessed that the

Clasico fixtures were bigger than the Manchester

derby. He added that Barca’s unforgettable 6-2

Clasico win at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2009 was his

most memorable football game.

Toure played for Barca between 2007 and 2010.

He won the Champions League in 2009.

Later, he spent eight years at Manchester City after

joining them for €30million in July 2010.

After short spells in Greece and China, Toure is

currently without a club.

He hasn’t confirmed his retirement yet even though

the iconic midfielder will turn 37 next month.

At Barca, Toure scored six goals in 118 matches.

At City, he netted 79 times in 316 appearances.
