Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has hailed his outgoing teammate and midfielder Yaya Toure for his service at the club.

The Belgian international says his Cote d’Ivoirean teammate has been brilliant at the English Premier League champions.

The four time CAF African Footballer of the Year is set to leave the Citizens after joining them from in 2010 from Spanish La Liga giants, Barcelona.

“I’d like to thank Yaya for the wonderful years he has given us. Power, pace, technique, vision, you name it, this guy is the most complete midfielder I have ever seen,” said the defender.

“Always present in the big moments, he is forever a legend of ours. #ManCity #Legend #CENTURIONS #SharkTeam.”

Although he has been linked with a possible return to Barcelona, Toure has revealed that he misses life in Spain, but a return is not on his hands.

"I miss Barcelona because of (Lionel) Messi and (Andres) Iniesta, who is formidable. If Barcelona called, I wouldn't hesitate," he said, as quoted by AS.

The 35-year-old leaves Pep Guardiola’s side having made 316 appearances and netted 79 goals plus 50 assists.
