Liverpool defender Kelly hails Toure leadership

Liverpool defender Martin Kelly has revealed Kolo Toure is already a major leader at the club.

He described how Toure is so keen to help, he'll even stop to give the opposition tips in practice matches.

"Kolo's a great person," Kelly told "He's come in as a big character for the club and helped a lot around the dressing room.

"Whether he's on your team or not in training, he's giving advice to everyone and you like that as a defender. You like feeling as though you're a full team.

"There are big players here who are helping to keep everything together, from the goalkeepers straight through to the strikers. That's been the balance in our team so far this season. It's been brilliant."
