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

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.
