​Man City legend Toure takes training sessions with QPR

Former Manchester City and Barcelona star Yaya Toure is taking training with Queens Park Rangers.

The Ivory Coast and City legend is completing his coaching badges as he looks to transition from his playing career.

Toure was invited by QPR technical director Chris Ramsey.

"I want to be out on the grass, interacting with other people, exchanging ideas," Toure told The Coaches Voice.

"I've been very lucky that Chris Ramsey has given me the opportunity to do that at QPR.

"I'm aware I need to learn everything and work my way up. It's all part of the journey and it's all really important.

"I've been able to lead coaching sessions with the younger age groups, watch Chris coach and learn from him, as well as lots of other good coaches like Andrew Impey and Paul Hall.

"Les Ferdinand has been great, giving me the chance to watch these coaches in action. They have pushed me to learn, and have shown me what you need to do differently to be a top coach."
