The Ivory Coast have handed Kolo Toure a coaching role with their lesser national teams.
The Ivorian Federation (FIFCI) announced through a press release on Wednesday that Toure has been appointed as the assistant coach of the Olympic and ‘A’ (locally based) teams.
He will be the right-hand man of head coach Ibrahim Kamara, with the locally-based Elephants set to face Niger over two legs in the final round of qualification for the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN).
Toure, who was capped over 100 times by the Elephants and featured in seven Africa Cup of Nations and three World Cups, currently holds a UEFA B license and will work towards his A license while helping out the national team.
The 36-year-old was last on the books of Scottish giants Glasgow Celtic last season.
