Toure: Villa play just like Arsenal

Arsenal defender Kolo Toure has praised Aston Villa for their style of play.

Toure told the Sunday Express: "It's not good to watch a bad team just kicking the ball long. You need to build things, good movement with the ball, that's why I feel really proud to play for Arsenal, because we do that and we are winning games.

"It's important for us to win something because that would be a good reward for the way we play. Yes, at times the football is almost breathtaking because it is so quick.

"There are some other English teams who play like that and I really enjoy seeing them play - like Aston Villa. We have a philosophy of playing in a certain way, to play really well and to win also - and those two things go together."
