The 37-year-old Ivorian had earlier said that he wanted to start a coaching career. Later, the player's agent Dmytro Silyuk said that Toure would go to Ukraine the following week.
"He will become a member of Olympic Donetsk's coaching staff. Yaya Toure used to play for FC Metallurg. This club does not exist anymore, but there is FC Olympic. Therefore, it is symbolic that he will start his coaching career with this club. Toure is not applying for the position of head coach. Yaya is just studying. He has a license, but he still needs to study in order to improve his skills, and he will go to Kyiv in order to study," Silyuk noted.
Toure signed his contract with FC Metallurg back in 2003. He finished his professional career in 2019.
As we reported earlier, FC Chelsea is interested in appointing Andriy Shevchenko as the club's new head coach.
Shevchenko represented the Aristocrats back in 2006-2009.
