Kolo Toure is uncertain about his Anfield future

Liverpool defender Kolo Toure has admitted he is in the dark about his future at the club but insists he wants to stay at Anfield.

The 35-year-old centre-back started in the Reds' Europa League final defeat to Sevilla on Wednesday but it could be his final game for the club, with his contract due to expire next month.

"I am just enjoying my time in this club - a fantastic club and fantastic supporters. We will see what will happen and you will have to ask that question to the manager.

"Of course I want to stay. It's a great club to play in, but the manager has his plan and any decision I will respect. He is a top manager and he knows what he is doing."
