Mancini coy on Toure future
Mar 07, 2013 9:16 PM GMT
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini says he is unsure whether Kolo Toure will be offered a new deal with the club.
The 31-year-old's contract with the English Premier League champions expires at the end of the season.
The Ivory Coast international has provided effective cover during Vincent Kompany's absence through injury, and was praised by Mancini for his display against Chelsea on February 24.
When asked whether the defender will be leaving at the end of the season, Mancini said: "I am also leaving in the summer - on holiday."
"We don't know at this moment. What is important is that he continues to play the way he did on Monday night and against Chelsea," he said, referring to City's league win over Aston Villa earlier this week.
"Kolo is a really professional player and deserves to have the satisfaction of those performances. He has done really well and we will see. I am happy for him because he is a good guy."
