Ahmed Toure flees Egypt



The Egyptian club El Gouna has announced that their Ivorian player Ahmed Toure has AIDS and has left Egypt with a false passport.

The team director Ahmed Al Sohafey said that the player left Egypt without permission from the club.

“When we signed him he did not suffer from any diseases , however we do regular check ups for the players all times and we now known that he has the virus” Ahmed said to supersport.com.

Toure came to Egypt last December and though many Egyptian clubs wanted his services like Al Masry and Petroject he signed with El Gouna.

Rumors last year suggest that Al Masry refused to sign him due to some disease he had. However Toure said the had he passed his medicals with Al Masry.

Toure was born in 1987 in Burkina Faso and but also holds Ivorian nationality. He has played in many clubs like Africa Sport , Asante Kotoko , Lokeren , Tunisian club Safaxien and now at El Gouna.
