I'm matured now – Ahmed Toure says as he plans Kotoko return

Ahmed Toure says his old ways are behind him and that he now has a more level-headed and matured way of approaching issues, moments after undergoing a medical in anticipation of a move to Kotoko for the third time in his career.
The Ivorian import had gained notoriety for running away from contracts he has duly signed. Critics have pointed to the fact that he was in the middle of a three-club tussle in 2009 involving Belgian club Lokeren, CS Sfaxien and the then Kessben FC who all claimed ownership of the 27-year old, but Toure says all that is in the past now.
”I was young then,” he told Kessben FM. ”It was a long time ago and I didn’t know what I was doing but I am a grown man now and as I result, I am careful about decisions I take.”
Before his surprising switch to Kumasi, Toure was on the verge of signing for avowed rivals, Accra Hearts of Oak and even scored the equalizer in their GHALCA Top 4 encounter with Heart of Lions but somehow agreed to join Kotoko after just 48 hours.
”It’s true I spoke with Hearts and even played for them but that is inconsequential now because I have signed for Kotoko, a club I love,” he added.
Kotoko seemed so desperate to get him on board that they made him append his signature to a three-year deal worth GHc 80,000 and sweetened the deal with a four-wheel drive car, despite the fact that he was yet to complete his medicals.
