Former Ivory Coast international Kolo Toure has been appointed as an assistant coach for the national team, the Ivorian Football Federation said on Thursday.

It is the third appointment in a matter of weeks for the 36-year-old since he announced the end of his playing career.

Toure is on the coaching staff at his last club Celtic and was previously named assistant coach of the Ivorian A team, their side made up of locally-based players.
He will be on the bench alongside Belgian coach Marc Wilmots for the Ivory Coast's crucial World Cup qualifier against Mali in Bamako on Friday.

The Ivorians have a one point lead in their group with two games still to play.

Toure, whose career included spells at Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool, played at the last three World Cups for the Ivory Coast.

    Yaya Toure has signed a new one-year deal with Manchester City, the Premier League club have announced.

    Toure was frozen out of the side by City boss Pep Guardiola in the early part of 2016-17 after a row between the manager and the player's agent Dimitri Seluk, but he has been very much involved since November, and has now put pen to paper on a new deal.
    “I’m delighted. I told myself the journey at City is not done and when I received a call from Txiki and talked to the manager I was very delighted,” said Toure.

    He has been with City since 2010, helping them win two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups.
    “Yaya has been a fantastic servant for Manchester City and continues to be a vital member of Pep Guardiola’s squad,” Txiki Begiristain told the club’s official website.

    “He is one of our most experienced and popular players and we couldn’t be happier that he is staying with us as we embark on what we all hope will be a very exciting season.

    “Yaya has been central to the successes we’ve had over the past seven years and he has a vital part play next season.”
    Toure's current deal was due to expire this summer.
