Olympiacos’ Yaya Toure fires AC Milan warning ahead of their Europa League clash

Olympiacos midfielder Yaya Toure has handed AC Millan warning ahead of their Uefa Europa League game on Thursday evening.

The 35- year-old rejoined the Red and Whites on September 2 after spending eight years with English Premier League side Manchester City.

Toure has a great memory of the San Siro – the home ground of both AC and Inter Milan – having faced both teams while playing for Barcelona.

The Cote d’Ivoire international will be making a return to the stadium when they take on Gennaro Gattuso’s men and he is confident that his side will fight to earn a positive result.

“It’s a great time for me to come back here but the most important thing for me is for the team to make a good game and get the result,” Toure said in a pre-match conference.

“We know we have a big team and we are a new team with many talented footballers and we want to do well, we are proud of the team we have and we look forward to fighting here and doing a good game.”

Toure has only made one appearance for Pedro Martins’ men this season, in a Cup game, but will hope to be involved against the Rossoneri.

Olympiacos are joint-second with Real Betis in Group F with one point behind leaders Milan.
