Kolo Toure has revealed that he is 'honoured' to have replaced the retired Jamie Carragher at Liverpool.

The 32-year-old Ivorian signed a deal at Anfield last month following a four-year spell with Manchester City.

Toure is now expected to fill the gap left by Carragher after the defender called an end to his 17-year career at the end of last season.

"It is a big honour," he told reporters. "To be chosen as Jamie Carragher's replacement is unbelievable.

"He has been a fantastic player for England and this football club, and is a great leader. It will not be easy but I will do my best."

Toure began his professional career with Arsenal in 2002 before joining City seven years later.
