Man City boss Mancini: Yaya Toure can go into his late 30's

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is backing Yaya Toure to play well into his 30's.

Mancini foresees Toure playing until his late thirties and admitted he wasn't worried about the original stand-off in negotiations between club and agent.

He said: "He can play until he is 36, 37. He can play in front of the defence. He can play like a defender.

"We are happy he will continue to play for us."
