Yaya Toure and Olympiacos part ways after three months

Former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has left Olympiakos, just three months after rejoining the Greek club.

The 35-year-old had a number of offers in the summer, including some from the Premier League, but opted to join Olympiakos.

Toure, who was released by City after a limited role last season, chose to join the club where he won the domestic double in the 2005-06 season.

The behaviour ensured that despite the Club affording him legend status and naming a training pitch in honour of his contribution, he engendered some strong responses from the fans, some of whom considered Toure had sullied his own legacy through his behaviour.

Four people were killed and four more injured before the 49-year-old turned the gun on himself after being shot by police. Brazil is routinely the world leader in total homicides, though mass shootings are rare.

The Ivorian worldwide was signed by Olympiacos on a free deal after City decided not to extend his contract.

Sky Sports News has been told Toure's "pay as you play" deal proved problematic for the Greek Super League club as they came under increasing budget restrictions.

" Yaya will remain deeply devoted to the club and wishes Olympiacos lots of success."
Olympiakos would like to thank him for everything he has offered to the club. Whilst I would love to have the opportunity to see Toure play again in the Premier League I believe such a move would be unlikely. Aside from Olympiacos, the Ivorian has represented the likes of Monaco, Barcelona and Manchester City.
