Liverpool have released Kolo Toure after deciding not to offer the veteran center back a contract extension.
The Reds apparently offered the 35-year-old Ivory Coast international a coaching position but Toure feels he still has what it takes to compete and will look to latch on with another club as a free agent. Toure saw more playing time than expected this past season as Liverpool dealt with several injury woes at the center back position, with Dejan Lovren, Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho sidelined at one point or another. Toure's Liverpool career came to a respectable end as he got to start in the Europa League final. Joe Gomez, who began last season at left back, will continue to develop at his more natural center back position and buffer Toure's departure. Jun 11 - 5:31 AM
