League Two outfit Leyton Orient could not help but exhibit some excitement at having Premier League legend Yaya Toure turned up to train with the club.

After a fairly turbulent season summed up with a mid-table finish, Leyton were happy to be associated with some class, at least temporarily, after ex-Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure was spotted training with them.

Orient fans, who might have had their hopes up after having the midfielder train with them will be disappointed to learn that he is only training at the club’s grounds purely for fitness.

However, Leyton Orient still snapped at the chance to wind the internet up as they shared Toure’s photo in training with the caption, “League Two isn’t ready”.

Within the first hour, the photo had garnered more than 800 retweets and 1500 likes.

For the fans, it is obviously quite a heart throbbing thought to think of having a Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League winner in their team.

Toure, before joining the Premier League, won titles in Spain with Barcelona where he also worked under Pep Guardiola briefly.

During their chit-chat before the game, Mourinho noticed the Leicester City assistant manager was already having a protruded stomach at the pitchside.

The former Manchester United boss, though, inaudible, but appeared to be telling Brendan Rodgers about his assistant's belly while they laughed it off before the game.
