Kolo urges brother Yaya to consider Marseille

Manchester - Celtic defender Kolo Toure believes it would be in his brother Yaya's best interest to leave Manchester City for a club like Marseille.

 Yaya Toure has not featured in a Premier League game for City since his agent rubbed manager Pep Guardiola the wrong way with a few incendiary comments.
 
The 33-year-old has since apologised to the City boss, but still doesn't appear to be in the Spaniard's plans, and Toure's brother has suggested he moves to a club that wants him.
 
Ligue 1 outfit Marseille has been mentioned as a potential destination, after they were recently backed by ambitious American owner Frank McCourt, who looks set to invest heavily.
 
"Yes, why not? He still has talent and some things to prove. It's certain that it's difficult at City right now," Kolo Toure told RMC when asked about a possible move to OM for his brother.
 
"We have all been through that. You're at the top at one moment, and then you go back down. You have to understand that you need a change of scenery, go to a place where people want you.
 

"I haven't spoken about it with him. He's still at City, I respect that. But OM is a super club and he knows the French league well."

Manchester City travel to Selhurst Park where they face Crystal Palace in an English Premiership clash and will be looking at close the two-point gap to leaders Arsenal.
