Kolo Toure has been appointed as an assistant coach to the Ivory Coast national team

The former Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City defender will work under ex-Belgium coach Marc Wilmots, the Ivorian Football Federation (FIF) has announced.

The posting comes soon after the 36-year-old, who retired from playing in the summer, took up a role on the backroom staff of his last club Celtic.

They will face Mali in their next World Cup qualifier on Friday.
