Ivory Coast midfield colossus Yaya Toure has few obvious reasons to be unhappy – he is enormously successful, earns more than $350,000 a week at Manchester City and will soon play at the World Cup.The move was a great success and Toure can hardly complain about being overlooked this year. He made the shortlist for the players' Player of the Year award in England and was named African Player of the Year for the third consecutive year. Toure has switched teams often in his career and might be on the move again.Toure has scored 16 goals in 82 appearances for the national side and although he predicts an African team will soon make it to a World Cup final, it is unlikely to be Ivory Coast.
