Ivory Coast legend and former Barcelona player Yaya Toure has said he is “always available” to help Barca if they need him.
The Spanish club have struggled this season, with the latest setback being back-to-back defeats across all competitions.
After losing 3–0 to Benfica in the Champions League last week, they fell 2–0 to Atletico Madrid in La Liga on Sunday – a defeat that leaves them in ninth place on the league standings.
“It may be a difficult time for the club but my belief for Barcelona is strong,” Toure, who is currently assistant coach of Russian club Akhmat Grozny, posted on social media.
“I will always be available for the club should they need me anytime as my heart is forever with the club, the people, and the fans.
“My time at Barcelona was one of the best memories of my playing career. The club decided to trust me when I was still a young player, yet to establish myself in the top leagues. I will forever be grateful to the club for what they have done for me,” the 38-year-old added.
Toure – a four-time African Player of the Year winner – was at Barcelona from 2007 to 2010. The midfielder was part of the historic 2009 Barcelona side that won six trophies in a calendar year.
