Yaya Toure’s ultimate team has not one or two but five strikers. Yes, five.
We’re talking Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi, Thierry Henry, Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba.
Yaya Toure was a special guest on Monday Night Football for Manchester City vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers and on the show, he revealed his dream XI.
He’s had some illustrious teammates from his trophy-laden spells at Barcelona and Manchester City as well as for Ivory Coast.
In goal, Toure’s opted for City’s No.1 Ederson with a back three consisting of Vincent Kompany, Rafael Marquez and Carles Puyol. Barcelona great Andres Iniesta sits in midfield.
Now his team gets really, really outrageous. The rest of his XI is made up of insane attacking talent in the shape of Leroy Sane and the aforementioned Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi, Thierry Henry, Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba.
Needless to say, it sent social media into overdrive.
Before Monday’s show, Jamie Carragher attempted to predict Toure’s XI. He got a few names.

Anyway, the 35-year-old Ivorian midfielder is a free agent after terminating his contract at Olympiacos. He resigned for the Greek club following the end of his illustrious spell at Manchester City in 2018.
He’s looking for a club with Celtic keen on securing his services on a short-term deal.
Brendan Rodgers has been in dialogue with his brother, Kolo Toure, who’s currently at Celtic as technical assistant coach.
He’s hoping Kolo can convince Yaya to make the move to Scotland.
Toure to Celtic? Watch this space.
