It might not have always been pretty, but it’s certainly been memorable. We love you Kolo!
Kolo Toure is 34-years-old today and in a tribute to the veteran defender, we thought we’d look back at his best moments in a Liverpool shirt.
Toure’s one of the nicest guys in the dressing room, and the rest of the squad values him highly as a player, a person and a role model.
It’s not always been rosy during his two years here – but it’s certainly been memorable – and he’s a real cult hero in our eyes.
Here’s some of the better, the worst, and the funniest moments from his spell.
His own goal against Fulham…
Granted, no-one wants to be reminded of their foibles on their birthday but this is a stand out moment in Toure’s Liverpool career.
Just how he contrived to score this own goal is a minor miracle in itself, like a perfect storm or car-crash unfolding in front of you. (At least now, knowing we actually won that match) you can’t take your eyes away or prevent a wry smile or chuckle.
So bad, it’s good. Luckily Steven Gerrard bagged that great penalty in the final minutes to secure the three points last term – letting Kolo off the hook!
