'I still have something to offer' - Kolo Toure

The 36-year-old feels he has the strength to carry on with his professional career, while revealing his regret while at the Anfield Stadium

Veteran defender Kolo Toure has stated that he wants to continue playing football if good offers come.

The former Cote d’Ivoire international is unattached after he was released by Celtic at the end of last season.

And despite his age plus injury woes, the 36-year-old who was part of Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ is adamant that he can continue playing football.

The veteran defender who was released by Celtic this summer still feels he has a lot to offer despite his age.

"I just want to carry on playing if there is a good option," Toure told  talkSPORT .

"But at the same time if there is a good opportunity as a coach I'd like a player-coach role to inspire young players because that is what I was doing at Celtic for the last six months.

"We spoke about me going on the staff and I was waiting for an offer to come but nothing is done yet and time is going on.

"I still have something to offer. I have had very few injuries and I can still bring my experience and fighting spirit.

"Every training I give 100 per cent - even though I wasn't playing at Celtic I was the best trainer there."

After leaving Manchester City, the Ivorian teamed up with Liverpool – where he played for three seasons before leaving for Scotland.

However, Kolo feels unsatisfied not winning a diadem with the English Premier League outfit.

"I nearly won the league with Liverpool (in 2014) and I feel privileged for that," he continued.

"That's my only regret to be honest because we nearly won the Premier League and came so close twice in the final of the Europa League and League Cup."
