Toure hoping for swift return

Toure, 29, appeared at the Soccerex conference in Manchester but

refused to be drawn on the controversy. The Ivory coast star has

been suspended after testing positive for a specified substance –

according to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger after taking one of his

wife’s diet pills. Toure toured the exhibitors stands and, asked if

he had a message for City fans, said: “I will be back soon – I hope

so.”
