'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Kolo Toure Ban Ends 2 September 2011

Kolo Toure will be free to resume his career at Manchester City on 2nd September after the Football Association imposed a six-month ban, backdated to March, as punishment for testing positive for a banned substance.



The 30-year-old defender released a brief statement saying...

'This has been a difficult period for me, and I am sad to have missed the team's triumph of securing Champions League football and also the FA Cup victory at Wembley. But I am relieved that I will be able to return to football in September and thank the FA's commission for their understanding.'

On this occasion the FA got their decision spot-on, or did they?

Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy for Kolo, he's a good defender and hopefully his quick return will mean that we don't end up signing Cahill; but I can't help but think that he's got off pretty lightly.

This serves as a big boost to next season's CL campaign. Kolo's experience will be extremely useful.
Johnny Baguette
This decision means we'll get a reasonably fit and match ready Kolo back - and his brother will stay happy too. Dread to think what would have happened if Kol had been given a much longer ban.
