Toure accepts Man City punishment

Kolo Toure has accepted the sanction imposed by Manchester City for his recent drugs ban.

City have finally got around to punishing the Ivory Coast international who has served his six-month ban for testing positive to a banned substance and the central defender has accepted the reprimand without protest.

"Following the conclusion of an internal disciplinary process, Manchester City Football Club can confirm that Kolo Toure has received a fine of 6 weeks' wages which relates to doping offences committed by him earlier this year," read a statement on the club's official website.

"Kolo accepts the decision and he and the club now wish to draw a line under this matter and focus on the season ahead."
