Man City legend Yaya Toure sent off just 10 seconds into final Qingdao Huanghai game

Manchester City legend Yaya Toure was sent off just 10 seconds into Chinese Second Division Qingdao Huanghai's final game of the season on Saturday.

The midfielder, 36, aimed a kick at his opponent off the ball, and was dismissed following a VAR review.

The match is said to be Toure's final appearance in China, with his side going on to lose 2-1 to Nantong Zhiyun.

Despite the defeat, Qingdao Huanghai have secured promotion to the Chinese Super League as champions of Chinese League One after picking up 57 points from their 30 matches this season, with Toure contributing two goals and three assists in his 14 games since joining in July.
