Former Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure admits he would love to return to Premier League as he feels he has one or two years to offer.
Toure left City in 2018 and joined Olympiacos in a short stint and recently helped Qingdao Huanghai back into the Chinese Super League. The Qingdao Huanghai midfielder feels he has one or two years to offer in England's top-flight even as a player-coach.
"I would love it but it depends on which kind of team. We will see because sometimes in Europe people look at ages in a different way - it's not about that. It depends on the club and what they want to achieve," he said.
"I don't want to go too far and propose myself but I just want them to give me a chance, we will see. In my mind I give myself one or maybe two years maximum playing football, after that, I want to enjoy myself with my family and try to work in other ways."
"I want to be proud of myself. As a footballer sometimes when you stop it early it is because people are trying to stop you, it's not coming from your heart, it's complicated. I remember when I was in Greece and people were speculating about my career - I was not happy. Something was missing. I want to be in control."
"I think I have to start to do my [coaching] badges. Football has been all my life from when I was a kid until now. Football is part of me and I can stop watching football or being part of it."
Toure's contract with Huanghai is set to expire on 31st December 2019.
