Yaya Toure, former Manchester City star, received a rousing welcome as he returns to Olympiacos 12 years after leaving the Greek club.

Toure who last played for Olympiacos in the 2005-06 season has been a free agent since leaving Premier League champions, Manchester City, in the summer.

The 35-year-old Ivorian midfielder was unveiled to the fans at the Karaskaikis Stadium on Sunday before Olympiacos thrashed Giannena 5-0 in the Greek league.

On going back to his former club, Toure wrote on his website: ‘I cannot wait to help the club win the trophies the great fans of Olympiacos deserve.’ According to Greek sports website Sport24,  Toure will be paid £2.2million for one season, plus £1.8m as a signing-on bonus.
