“To be honest with you, before the end of the league I sat down with Bechem management and told them that I’ll only consider an offer from Asante Kotoko because I was eager to play for them again to prove some people that I’m not finished as they perceive,” Toure stated.

“I waited for them but there were so much negativity surrounding my intentions and I felt I had to look elsewhere because I couldn’t wait longer.”

“Asec will be playing in the Champions League next season, so I discussed with Bechem United to see what will be good for both of us. Above everything else, the offer was too good to turn down and I wanted this challenge very much and everybody knows how I love challenges.”

Toure won the Ghana Premier League top scorers gong with Asante Kotoko during the 2007/08 season.
