Fifa has called Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Touré a "giant of African football" following the news that he has retired from playing the game.

Earlier, his agent had tweeted the news that the former Manchester City and Barcelona player was not longer going to play.

The 35-year-old has not played since having his contract at Greek side Olympiakosterminated in December 2018.

"Yaya has decided to end his career as a champion," agent Dimitri Seluk said, adding that he now plans to become a coach:

"I'm sure that two years after Yaya gets the Pro coaching licence, he will head one of the serious clubs and achieve great success in the coaching field. Now he has already begun to take steps in this direction."
