Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is delighted with the early impact of Kolo Toure.
Toure arrived in the summer on a Bosman from Manchester City.
Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo: "Kolo is the type of character that I love in a back-four, an organiser and a leader.
"I think whether he's playing with Daniel Agger or whether he's playing with Martin Skrtel, you need that leadership."
