Football-mad Toure knows plenty about Man City rivals Salzburg

Manchester City defender Kolo Toure says he knows plenty about Europa League opponents Salzburg.

Toure admits he watches as much European football as he can and has seen enough of City's Austrian opponents to know the opening group stage clash will be not be easy.

"I know quite a bit about Salzburg - are they a good team? Of course they are and they will be difficult, particularly in their own stadium," he told City's website.

"I've watched a lot of Austrian football and Salzburg move the ball around well, are technically good and have a physical element to their game - it should be a great match and I think that, because of our profile, each time we play in Europe it will be a kind of cup final for the home team.

"Everyone wants to beat us, but we need to begin the group stages with a good result, so we'll be ready."
