Arsene Wenger Claims Kolo Toure Took Diet Pill

Arsene Wenger has told reporters that Kolo Toure’s failied drugs test was down to him taking one of his wife’s diet pills.

“He wants to control his weight a little bit because that’s where he has some problems and he took the product off his wife,” said the Arsenal boss.

“Never trust your wife! That is how he was caught.”

Wenger signed the Ivory Coast star back in 2002 from Mimosas and he went on to make a total of 326 appearances for the club after a seven year stay with the gunners.

“I think it is a mistake,” he added. “He was not cautious enough. I don’t think there’s a desire there to do something wrong and hide it.

“It is a complete surprise because I had Kolo Toure here for years, I brought him here.

“He is a boy who has a clean life. He’s very honest living, always at home, a family man, and I don’t suspect him at all to have taken drugs to enhance his performances.

“I just think it is a mistake by forgetting to ask, ‘Can I take that?’.”
