Arsene Wenger has won the respect of many City fans by having taken time out to contact Kolo Toure and then speak out in support of the beleaguered City star...
...following the revelation that the 29 year old Ivory Coast international has failed a Football Association drugs test.
At today's press conference the Arsenal gaffer said:
'It is a complete surprise because I had Kolo Toure here for years, I brought him here. He is a boy who has a clean life. He's very honest living, always at home, a family man, and I don't suspect him at all to have taken drugs to enhance his performances.'
It was reported last night that Toure may have taken a dietary supplement pill and Wenger has gone some way to confirming that:
'I think it is a mistake...He was not cautious enough. I don't think there's a desire there to do something wrong and hide it. He wants to control his weight a little bit because that's where he has some problems and he took the product off his wife. I just think it is a mistake by forgetting to ask, 'Can I take that?'
