Manchester City Football Club can confirm that Kolo Toure has today been suspended from all football activity for a period of 6 months with effect from 2nd March 2011 (the date of the start of his provisional suspension).
He will, therefore, be able to join his colleagues in the first team squad from 2 September.
The suspension follows an FA Regulatory Commission hearing which was held today at Wembley Stadium.
“This has been a difficult period for me, and I am sad to have missed the team’s triumph of securing Champions League football for Manchester City and also the FA Cup victory at Wembley," commented Toure.
"But I am relieved that I will be able to return to football in September and thank the FA’s commission for their understanding about my case in coming to their decision today.”
