Had 10 missed calls off Kolo Toure so far today.
Wonder what he wants?

However, the best tribute to the great man came from a recount of his trial at Arsenal:
— Football Today (@goldnewsuk) June 10, 2016
“I remember the ball was rolled into Thierry Henry and Kolo Toure, from nowhere, smashed him from behind. It was a terrible tackle, a red card in a normal game, and our best player was rolling around.
Wenger was shouting;”Kolo, what are you doing? Don’t tackle!”
The story continues as Kolo does the exact same to the team’s other star player, Dennis Bergkamp. What follows next is pure comedy gold.
“We went again. This time Kolo made a great tackle, the ball went flying up in the air and landed right at Arsene Wenger’s feet…So next thing you know, Kolo took him out with a two-footed tackle! All you could hear was Wenger screaming.
Apparently Wenger liked his “desire” and decided to sign him there and then.
Never change Kolo, never change.
