Toure eyeing world domination

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has stated that the club are aiming to be the biggest team in the world, starting with winning the Premier League title on Sunday.

The Etihad Stadium outfit can lift their first top-flight crown since 1968 if they beat QPR at home at the weekend, and have made giant strides since the takeover of Sheik Mansour.

The Ivory Coast international has been an integral man in City’s title charge, and feels the club can become one of the most prominent sides on the planet.

“That’s why I came here, to help the team, give my experience to the young guys and to help the club go forward and make it bigger than any club in the world,” Toure told The Telegraph.

“But now, we are at a good step. To make history, we have to win something and follow the example of what we did last year.

“Then we have to perform, go again and be strong for the next couple of years, but I think that is coming. But this Sunday we have to deliver and that is very important. The job is not done yet.

“We have to keep going because QPR need the points, but it would be amazing if we win. It is for occasions like this I came to City – to make history – and I hope I will make history at the weekend,” he concluded.
