Yaya Touré says he is “available” for Barça in case of need


Ivorian legend Yaya Touré has said he is ready to help FC Barcelona at any time if contacted to do so.

The Blaugrana have been irregular this season, suffering back-to-back defeats in all competitions, the most recent on Saturday, when they lost 2-0 to La Liga champions Atletico Madrid.

Barca have won only once in their last six matches in all competitions, with three defeats and two draws. A series that hurts the faithful of the club, and it is for this reason that the former midfielder offered to help the team when needed.

“It might be a tough time for the club, but my faith in Barcelona is strong,” Touré, who is currently Akhmat Grozny’s assistant coach, posted on his official social media account.

“I will always be available for the club if they need me at any time because my heart is forever with the club, the people and the fans.

“My time at Barcelona was one of the best memories of my playing career. The club decided to trust me when I was still a young player, who had not yet managed to win in the big leagues. I will always be grateful to the club for what they have done for me. “
