Premier League soccer player Kolo Toure has signed a boot deal with Warrior Football.

Premier League soccer player Kolo Toure has signed a boot deal with Warrior Football.

The agreement will see the Ivorian defender wear the brand’s Skreamer range of soccer boots. He joins the likes of Vincent Kompany, Marouane Fellaini and Tim Cahill as an ambassador of the American brand.

Toure currently plays for Liverpool FC, who last year entered into a long-term kit deal with the same brand reportedly worth in excess of US$38 million per season.

Toure is optimistic about the new deal, he said: “I know I’m at the right club to achieve my goals and now I feel I’m with the right sportswear brand to help me fulfill those ambitions. Liverpool Football Club has the right mentality, and during my time here, it’s been easy to see why the club chose Warrior to enter this new era. I’ve chosen to wear Skreamer because it’s a boot that offers both power and accuracy – the perfect match for my game!”

Warrior’s global sports marketing manager Ben Haworth added: “We want players who do things the Warrior way, letting their football do the talking and leading by example on the pitch. Kolo epitomises this mentality, every time he crosses the white line he leaves nothing in the changing room and anything less than 100 percent is simply not acceptable. He is a leader, a role model and a true Warrior!”

Toure has enjoyed a distinguished career in the Premier League and is one of only five players to have won the competition with two different clubs.
