“It is an honour to be back at Olympiacos! When I left in 2006 I said I would come back and I am delighted to keep my word. I had offers from lots of clubs across Europe, Asia and the USA. Ultimately, I made my decision based on the special relationship I have with this incredible club,” Toure told club website .

“I am as hungry for success now as I was when I first arrived here many years ago and I cannot wait to help the club win the trophies the great fans of Olympiacos deserve.

“It is now time to let my football do the talking once again. Let’s do this,” he said.

Toure will be looking forward to proving his worth when Olympiacos slug it out with Asteras Tripolis at the Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki on September 14.
