Yaya Toure signs for French side Caen - but it's not Man City's midfielder

Yaya Toure
Yaya Toure, the famous one, has yet to decide his future.

It looked for all the world like SC Caen had moved quickly to pull off one of the biggest transfer coups in recent memory when they announced that Yaya Toure had agreed a deal to join the mid-table Ligue 1 outfit.

Indeed, more than a few quizzical eyebrows were raised when the French team proudly announced their new acquisition on Thursday evening.

However, it quickly became apparent that Caen's pulling power wasn't quite as impressive as first thought when they posted a photo of their new recruit...

New Ivory Coast boss Michel Dussuyer facing high expectations

After previously coaching Benin and Guinea, Michel Dussuyer faces a new kind of pressure in leading the Ivory Coast.
After previously coaching Benin and Guinea, Michel Dussuyer faces a new kind of pressure in leading the Ivory Coast.

There are two, equally tough, kinds of jobs in football coaching: those with expectation and those without. Michel Dussuyer used to be an example of the former.

He was previously when he was in charge of Benin. The Squirrels, as they are known, are a smaller footballing nation with few accomplishments to their name. Then, Dussuyer began to move towards the latter with Guinea, a rising nation, who have been African Nations' Cup (ANC) quarterfinalists three times and are desperate to break through...

With most domestic leagues still enjoying their off-season, the focus remains on coach and player movements across the African continent. This week, the current champions, Ivory Coast, narrowed their search for a new manager, while there were some big moves being mulled by players from South Africa and Ghana. And there is some on-field action, as a country that has not hosted an international in more than a year has been given permission to stage a match. Here's the news round-up:

Who will coach...

The 2015 Africa Cup of Nations is over, but what next for Equatorial Guinea?

The Ivory Coast celebrated their first Africa Cup of Nations win since 1992 after a nervy final with Ghana.

MALABO, Equatorial Guinea -- The host nation of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations has not been short on sights that provoke a double take over the past month. Another eyebrow-raiser comes when, on what had been expected to be a day spent back home in London before Monday night's flight was cancelled, you sneak a look around Sipopo.

It is a development built around 20km outside Malabo: the streets are wide, the lawns vast, the golf course lush, the rows and rows of apartments smart and the hotels...

Didier Drogba posts priceless reaction to Ivory Coast's win

Before finally getting their hands on the trophy after Sunday evening's epically tense final in Bata, it had been a long, long, long time since Ivory Coast last snared themselves an Africa Cup of Nations title.

Indeed, since winning their only Africa Cup by beating Ghana 11-10 on penalties (sound familiar?) in 1992, the Ivorians had seen 23 trophy-less years crawl by with just three runners-up medals to their name in the intervening stretch.

With that in mind, you can probably forgive Didier Drogba's...

1. Boubacar Barry provides the most romantic of conclusions

Boubacar Barry is now 35 and has, through the thick and sometimes very thin, been a mainstay during Ivory Coast's rise to global prominence over the last decade. He is far from the biggest name from their "golden generation" and it is perhaps...
