Man City's Yaya Toure Creates the Ultimate Footballer From the Best Players He's Ever Played With

​Fresh from his resurrection at Manchester City, midfielder Yaya Toure has created his own Frankenstein’s monster of a footballer, using the best parts from the greatest he’s ever lined up alongside to create the ‘ultimate footballer.’ 

In the ​video for Manchester City’s YouTube channel, the Ivorian is given a number of attributes as categories that he has to pick and match with players that he’s played with throughout his illustrious career.


Starting with vision, the 33-year-old opts for an unsurprising choice from his days in La Liga: “I think one of the best at vision is Xavi.”

Next up comes leadership, and again Toure mines the well of his days at Barcelona.

“Carles Puyol is the best” the 2009 Champions League winner states categorically.

While the majority of the attributes selected came from players who Toure has played with at either Barcelona and Manchester City, there was a surprising choice for the stamina category – the relatively unknown Davy Theunis.
