All over the world, representatives of professional footballers associations are travelling from club to club, to invite players to participate in the vote for the FIFA FIFPro World XI 2012. Kolo Touré speaks from Ivory Coast.


Kolo Habib Touré is a vice president of the professional footballers’ association of Ivory Coast, AFI. He has been there from the start. The 31-year old central defender is one of the most prolific players in his home country. A member of a very talented generation which also includes Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou, Didier Zokora and Kolo’s younger brother Yaya Touré.


Kolo Touré is currently under contract at Manchester City, champions of the English Premier League, where he is engaged in a tough battle for playing time, as manager Roberto Mancini’s squad is loaded with talented players.


But Kolo Touré still is a very important member of the national team of Ivory Coast. Recently, FIFPro Division Africa secretary general Stéphane Burchkalter and AFI president Cyrille Domoraud visited the national team of Ivory Coast, the Elephants. All players of the national team participated in the vote for the FIFA FIFPro World XI.


After dropping his form in the ballot box, Kolo Touré took time to appear in front of the FIFPro camera to address all other professional footballers in Africa and the rest of the world: vote for the FIFA FIFPro World XI!


One day later, Kolo Touré made his 100th appearance for the national team of Ivory Coast, beating Senegal 4-2.
