Ex-Arsenal and Man City defender Kolo Toure accidentally reveals guilty pleasure after mishearing question

The experienced defender, who is now on the books at Celtic, made the revelation during a recent Q&A session with some young supporters of the Scottish champions.

Toure was asked about his favourite song, with those in attendance expecting to be given a terrace chant in reply.

Instead, the innocuous question led to red faces all around.

"Don't laugh, okay?" Toure said. "But I like Whitney Houston."


The 36-year-old was quickly informed that he had given too much information away, leaving the Ivorian with his head in his hands.

Toure is not the type to get too down on himself, though, and it was not long before his trademark smile was back in full view.

With the session back on track, it was finally revealed that his favourite ‘song’ is in fact the ‘Kolo/Yaya’ chant pieced together by Manchester City fans when both brothers were turning out at the Etihad Stadium.

With Toure back in the swing of things he then proceeded to lead the assembled media and students in a rendition of said song, complete with dance routine.

Life is rarely dull in the world of Kolo Toure, and we are all the better for that!
