Tottenham midfielder, Yves Bissouma has come out to say that Yaya Toure is his football idol. He recently revealed that he is delighted to have the Ivory Coast legend as part of the Spurs family, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, his friends and family know he is a massive fan of the Ivorian, and even when he got into a Mali academy years ago, Toure was his inspiration.
Bissouma added that he wishes to be like Yaya someday but he knows the journey will not be easy.
His words, “I can’t believe I am with you [Yaya], to be honest. Everyone knows, my family, my friends, that I am a big fan of you. When I was young, I was watching you every day. I remember when I was in the academy in Mali, my inspiration was you.”
“When they ask me, which player do you like, which player do you think was the best in [my] position, I say you because, as a midfielder as well, I want to be like you one day. I know it’s not easy, but you can give me some secrets.”
