Kolo Toure urges brother Yaya to consider Marseille move.

Manchester City star Yaya Toure needs to consider leaving the Etihad for regular football elsewhere, says the midfielder's brother Kolo Toure. The 33-year-old has been frozen out of the Citizens' first team ever since Pep Guardiola got up set by comments from Yaya's agent, Dimitri Seluk. Yaya later apologised on behalf of his agent Seluk but hasn't played a game since the second leg of the Champions League qualifier against Steaua Bucharest in August.

However, Celtic defender Kolo Toure says the former Barca star should consider a move to Ligue 1 side Marseille.

"He still has talent and some things to prove," he told RMC. "Of course it's difficult at City at the moment. We've all been through that. We're at the top and at some point you go down. "He has to understand that and maybe go for a change of air, to go somewhere where people want you.

"Honestly, I haven't talked to him about that [Marseille]. He's still at City, I respect that. But OM is a great club. He knows the French championship well, so it could be a great club for him." Yaya Toure spent the 2006-07 season with Monaco before joining La Liga giants Barcelona.
