Toure travelled to England from the Ivory Coast where he was playing for ASEC Mimosas 12 years ago for his big trial at Arsenal.
And Toure thought the best way to impress was the smash key Gunners like Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and ARSENE WENGER!
"Seriously could have been a red card in a normal game. Our best player is on the floor rolling around.
"Arsene Wenger screams, 'Kolo, what are you doing? Don't tackle, don't tackle!'
"Next minute, ball goes into Dennis Bergkamp. Kolo Toure, exactly the same, two-foots Dennis Bergkamp.
"We're thinking this is unbelievable.
"The next ball comes in and he makes a great tackle, Kolo Toure, but the ball flips up in the air and Arsene Wenger used to stand right in the middle between the midfield and the forwards and he'd try and look at all the movement.
"The lads are thinking this is unbelievable. The trialist has taken out Henry, Bergkamp and Wenger on his trial.
"Now Wenger's had to limp off, he's gone back to the medical room so Kolo Toure's nearly crying. He can't believe it. It was his big day at Arsenal and he's took out two of our best players and the manager.
"That afternoon Arsene Wenger's sitting there with a big ice pack on his ankle and I felt sorry for Kolo Toure and I said, 'Boss, I don't think he meant to kick you like that' and he said 'Look at my ankle'.
"I said, 'He didn't mean it, boss' and he said 'I know he didn't mean it. I like his desire. We sign him tomorrow' and that was it, he signed him."
