Agent says Yaya Toure serious about coaching future after Spurs chance

The agent of Manchester City legend Yaya Toure says he's working his way towards top level management.

Toure is currently working inside Tottenham's academy as he continues to pick up coaching experience.

Dimitri Selyuk told Sport-Express: “Yaya, on the other hand, is studying and, accordingly, worked at Akhmat (as assistant coach). Now he will have the next step: he works with youth at Tottenham, and (Mikel) Arteta said that the doors of Arsenal are open for Yaya.

"And, given that he is studying for a license in England, it is simply more convenient for him to work there. Yaya says a huge thank you to the Akhmat leadership. He is glad that he was given the opportunity to work there. We agreed with Akhmat that such a situation is possible in the winter, so many thanks to them.

"Do I admit that he can return to Russia? Never say never. Let's see."
