Former Manchester City star, Yaya Toure, was shown the way out of the pitch with a red card barely 10 seconds into a game which is potentially the final match of his lucrative career.

Earlier in the week, he took to social media to congratulate his side for making promotion to the Chinese Super League for the very first time.

"Promotion!!! Next season Qingdao Huanghai FC will be where they should be... the Chinese Super League!” Toure tweeted earlier in the week.

To compound his woes, Toure's side went on to lose 2-1 though they were still crowned champions.

Twitter users have now likened Toure's viral sign off from the Chinese league to Zinedine Zidane's last match in his career in the 2006 World Cup final between France and Italy.
