Barry backing ex-Man City pal Toure for Liverpool success

Kolo Toure has received a ringing endorsement from a former Manchester City team-mate who believes he will prove a hit at Liverpool.

City midfielder Gareth Barry is convinced the veteran defender will prove his worth at Anfield.

"Kolo will be a great signing. I think it's an astute signing by Brendan Rodgers because he has got so much experience," Barry said.

"He will always give 100 per cent, he will never give up. Kolo will win over the fans straight away.

"Losing Jamie Carragher's experience from the dressing room will be a huge loss for Liverpool and the fans.

"But Kolo, with his experience and his work-rate, the way he goes about his training, will do a good job of replacing him."
