Ivorian striker Ahmed Toure provides evidence he is HIV/AIDS negative

Published on: 12 November 2012

Former Asante Kotoko striker Ahmed Toure is ready to take on Egyptian side El Gouna who announced he is HIV/AIDS positive.

The Ivorian has released the report of a test taken at the Al Moktabar Laboratories in Cairo on August 9, 2012 and signed by Dr Hend El Sherbini which he tested negative.

He has decided to seek justice from FIFA if the club is found to be behind the spreading of the false information about his health.

Toure has signed a pre-contract with El Gouna and agreed to join them in January when the transfer window re-opens.

An official of El Gouna, Ahmed Al Sohafey, told a reporter in Egypt that the 25-year-old has contracted the virus.

Al Sohafey also alleged that Toure left the North African country with a fake passport.

"I'm in Abidjan now and I did not run away with a fake passport and don't believe the club is the source of the story," Toure exclusively told

"If the club is involved, then I will go to FIFA to report them."

"I agreed to play for them next January after passing my medical test," he added.

The 2011 Ghana Premier League Most Valuable Player quit Ghanaian champions Kotoko in July.

He has since joined Ivorian second-tier side Athletic FC Adjame to keep fit.

Toure played for Belgian side Lokeren, Africa Sport and Tunisian side CS Sfaxien.

He recently naturalized to play for Burkina Faso after attempts to play for Ghana proved futile.

    HIV aids is no more scary. Hey! Ahmed accept the fact that you are infected after all your test shows that it was conducted some 3 months ago.By which the virus was still in its nascent developmental stage. I believe the egytian club conducted the test when the virus has started to resurface. Anti-retrol viral drugs are available and I believe you can afford it.So buddy, don't try to put dust in the eyes of the public. I will edge you to start going for the drugs before the the virus get out of hand.

    My advice to the Ahmed Toure guy is this health report was given to you on August 9, 2012, that is about 3 months ago. Anything could have happened between then and now. Based on what that team is saying and I quote "When we signed him he did not suffer from any diseases , however we do regular check ups for the players all times and we now know that he has the virus,” El Gouna director Ahmed Al Sohafey sai" My advise to you Mr. Toure is take an HIV test today or tomorrow to prove all the critics wrong.

    Hey, Ahmed Toure, after looking very closely at this report, I don't even see your name anywhere on it.
