Manchester City defender Kolo Toure has revealed that a falling out with a team-mate at Arsenal forced him to leave the club this summer.
The former Arsenal captain made his move to Eastlands after a lack of playing time, however the Ivory Coast international has gone on to suggest that the lack of games was due to a fellow player at the Emirates Stadium.
Despite refusing to name the player in question, many believe the culprit was fellow defender William Gallas after a reputed bust up at the start of 2009.
“I had problems with certain players at Arsenal, especially one, whose name I will not say because I don’t want to feed the controversy,” said Toure.
“I didn’t have much time on the pitch last year because I think there’s a player who got the manager believing that he and I had no understanding on the field. That did surprise me hugely.”
“I have never looked to put a spoke in anyone’s wheel at all, My wish was to finish my career at Arsenal, but there are always banana skins.”
