Kolo Toure has just signed a new long term deal, and his latest comments show you why he made that decision.

Toure is probably one of the most humble, honest and professional players in the game, he’s greatful for his opportunity and he sure as hell isn’t going to let anyone down.

The Ivorian always plays with a huge smile on his face and whilst reading his comments you can almost see that big grin in the minds eye.

‘Mr Wenger knows what he is doing. He is really clever. He has built so many players,’ Toure told the Daily Express.
‘You see players like George Weah, Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira, they all come from Wenger.’

“He helped them be where they are. He is helping us now as well, players like me, Cesc Fabregas, Philippe Senderos, all the young players at Arsenal. It’s a dream of us to play for this great club.’

‘It is always difficult to get into a big club like this and when you are really young like us, it is even more difficult. I am one of the oldest now at 25. Some of them here are just 18 and they are doing really well.’

“When he sees a player, he knows what they can do. You feel like a family member. You can joke, play together. It’s fantastic.’
