Manchester City Vs Stoke City: Any Success Will Be For My Brother Kolo - Yaya Toure
Man City might be close to ending their trophy drought at Eastlands but Yaya Toure admits that he is sad ahead of the FA Cup final on Sunday
Yaya Toure is eager to win the match on Sunday as a tribute to his brother
Yaya Toure was the one that drove City into their FA Cup final at Wembley after scoring that important winner against Manchester United but the Ivorian is adamant that things will not be the same without his brother, Kolo Toure on the field.
Kolo Toure was suspended from football after failing a drug test in March although City have coped pretty well with his absence by qualifying for the FA Cup final as well as the Champions League next season. Nonetheless Yaya Toure insists that he will be playing for his brother on Sunday.
"There will be sadness. Before I signed for City I told my brother I wanted to come to England to play with him, and to win something together. That won't happen tomorrow, which means it will be a hard moment for him, and for me as well.
"We have spoken about the best way of getting round the problem and decided it is by winning the cup. He is supporting me and if we win, it will be for him as well."
