Asante Kotoko legend Amed Toure to have a testimonial in Kumasi as he retires from football

Asante Kotoko legend Amed Toure is to have a testimonial in his honour to hung his boots for the final time after a blistering career that saw him play in Ghana, the Ivory Coast, DR Congo, Belgium and Egypt.

Toure, 34, currently on the books of Ghana Premier League, GPL side Medeama SC, will officially retire from football when his contract runs out with the Yellow and Mauves later this year.

The former Burkina Faso international had three spells at Asante Kotoko, winning the MVP award in the season of 2010/11 as the Porcupines won that season's championship.

He was also part of the Asante Kotoko squad that won their last GPL title in the season of 2013/14 during a playing career that has lasted 17 years.

Toure, enjoyed great moments in Kumasi with Asante Kotoko and is held in high esteem by the Porcupine faithful for his contributions to the club when he arrived from the Ivory Coast as a teenager.

To him, it will only be natural that he ends his playing career at a stadium where he enjoyed great reviews when playing for Ghana's biggest football club.

He took to his Facebook page to announce the impending testimonial match, asking the Asante Kotoko faithful to be ready and welcome him when the date is due.

The Baba Yara Stadium will be the venue for the final bow of one of the greatest foreign talents that ever played on Ghanaian soil and, it should be a befitting farewell to a player who came to love and adore Asante Kotoko.
