It was a final game that will always be remembered, just for the wrong reasons...

Yaya Toure will be hoping he can lead his Manchester City side into the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday night by seeing off old club Monaco.

Toure spent the 2006-07 season at the French side, helping them to avoid relegation as he shifted from defence into midfield.


His performances at Monaco led to Barcelona forking out Dh39m for the Ivory Coast man.

Rumour was abound that Toure would move in 2007 but in what turned out to be his final appearance in a Monaco shirt, he certainly didn’t look anywhere near the player he would become.

Bowing out in the worst of fashions, Toure managed to score an own-goal before then being sent-off for an awful two-footed tackle in an eventual 2-1 defeat to Sochaux.

Toure and his team will be hoping for a better performance on Wednesday, while his former employers will be praying for a repeat performance!
