Sadio Mane reveals why Yaya Toure attended Liverpool training this week

Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane has revealed why former Manchester City and Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure attended a Reds training session on Thursday.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the Senegalese explained the 38-year-old has been his friend for a number of years and wanted to get some coaching pointers from watching Jurgen Klopp.

I said, ‘Yaya, do you think it is the best idea to come to watch our training?!’ He said, ‘My friend, I’m coming there! Just ask your boss!’,” Mane said.

He is a very, very good guy and I have known him since 2004. He’s a good friend of mine so we always keep in touch.”

“When he asked me if I can ask the boss whether he can come to watch training I said, ‘With pleasure’ and I think the boss was happy to have Yaya with us today to watch training and learn something because I wish him all the best,” the Liverpool forward continued.

He wants to be a manager in the future and all the boys were happy to see him, to have a quick conversation with him and have a little bit of a talk about City and Liverpool. It was nice to meet him again.”

Toure is currently a coach for Russian side Akhmat Grozny, but is hoping to go into management in the future. The former Manchester City star could certainly do a lot worse than taking a look at how Liverpool and Klopp set up their sessions.

It’s also quite nice to see Yaya, who was a rival on the pitch, get on so well with the Reds now he’s hanged up his boots.
