Toure defends City move

Yaya Toure insists he has not taken a step down by joining Manchester City from Barcelona.

Toure has become the focal point of City's summer recruitment drive after quitting the Nou Camp for the blue camp.

"I don't think this is a step down," said Toure, who was speaking at the launch of City's revolutionary online coaching school.

"The Premier League is amazing. It is stronger than La Liga. And Manchester City are making great strides within it.

"In future they will be a big club.

"Every team in every country is starting to talk about the club.

"They know we are signing good, important players and I want to do my bit.

"I don't feel pressure. I do have a lot of experience and I am determined to do my very best to make this club successful."
