Egyptian Premier League side El Gouna are claiming that former Asante Kotoko striker Ahmed Toure has HIV/Aids.
The club are also alleging that the Ivorian fled the North African country without their permission.
“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 said.
In December last year, rumours were rife that Al Masry refused to sign him because he was HIV/Aids positive.
But Toure vehemently denied that and claimed he had passed the medical.
In July this year, the 24-year-old quit Ghana Premier League champions Asante Kotoko after accusing then coach Maxwell Konadu and his backroom staff for treating him as an outcast.
Toure, who has naturalized to play for Burkina Faso, has played in many clubs including Belgian side Lokeren, Africa Sport and CS Sfaxien.
