In the view of the Burkinabé professional footballer comparing him [Touré] to in-form Kotoko talisman Yacouba is flawed.
Touré believes that Yacouba has not done half of what he did at the Kumasi based club and in the Ghana league in particular.
The Burkinabe striker signed for Ivorian heavyweights Asec Mimosas after fantastic season with Bechem United.
“Yacouba hasn’t done even half of what I did for Asante Kotoko. It’s not the same because I won the best player in Ghana, have scored a lot of goals for Kotoko and even won the goal king.”
“I’ve done a lot of things for Kotoko that Yacouba is yet to do, so you cannot compare.”
“But I’m praying he overtakes what I did at Kotoko because he’s a good player and he’s like my young boy.” Touré said in an exclusive interview with SilverSports 'Perry Paisley'.
Ahmed Toure has spent some time in and out of the Ghana Premier League as he predominantly played for Asante Kotoko from 2007 to 2008.
He played with Bechem United in the CAF Confederations Cup but the side could not get past MC Alger in the first round.
He went on to play for Lokeren and CS Faxien before coming back to play for Asante Kotoko from 2011 to 2012.
Toure and Yacouba have been called to the Burkinabe national team for next weekend AFCON qualifier with Mauritania.
Yacouba is making his fourth appearance for the Stallions whiles Toure is getting his eighth invitation.
