Kolo Toure to make Premier League return as Brendan Rodgers' assistant at Leicester

The former Liverpool boss is expected to take his backroom staff from Celtic with him to the King Power Stadium.

Toure has been working alongside Rodgers at Celtic Park since he joined as a technical assistant in September 2017.

When he arrived at Celtic, he labelled the 46-year-old as one of the "greatest managers in the world".

The 37-year-old has also been working as an assistant manager for the Ivory Coast international team since August 2017.

He was named as the head coach of his country's Olympic squad and the Under-23 side after he joined.

Toure ended his playing career in Glasgow after spells with Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal and ASEC Mimosas.

Celtic assistant boss Chris Davies and head of performance Glen Driscoll are also set to make the move.

Rodgers has been with the Scottish giants since 2016, but he has quit ahead of a £6 million move to Leicester. 

The former Swansea City boss is expected to take charge of the Foxes after Claude Puel was sacked on Sunday.

Foxes chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha axed the Frenchman, 57, following a shocking run of results.

Leicester, who are twelfth in the Premier League, have managed to secure just one win in their last nine outings.

Neil Lennon is set to take over the Scottish side as caretaker boss until the end of the season.
