Toure had a brief coaching spell with Queens Park Rangers working alongside Chris Ramsey at the beginning of 2021. He also held coaching roles with the Ukrainian Premier League side Olimpik Donetsk and Akhmat Grozny.

Former Spurs striker Jermain Defoe also will work alongside existing staff across the Under-17 to Under-21 age categories at Spurs.
