Kolo Toure has been suspended by Manchester City after testing positive for a specified substance.

“Manchester City confirm that the FA has informed Kolo Toure that an ‘A-sample’ provided by him has tested positive for a specified substance,” said a club statement. “As result of this, he has been suspended from participating in all first team and non-first team matches pending the outcome of the legal process.”

No additional information is available as of press time, and Manchester City has said it will provide no further comment at this stage. Toure, who was the former captain of Manchester City before manager Roberto Mancini handed the captain’s armband to Carlos Tevez, has been an important part of Manchester City’s 2010-11 season.
