Kolo Toure offers to change his name so misspelled tattoo is correct
Kolo Toure has come up with a solution to the unfortunate tattoo fail suffered by one of his fans earlier this week.
You might have seen the story earlier this week about a Liverpool fan named Dom Pearson who, drunkenly we understand, had decided to get Reds defender Kolo Toure’s name tattooed on his foot.
There was just the one problem with this idea; the tattoo artist misspelled the Ivorian defender’s name, calling him 'Kolo Touro'.
Kolo heard of the 20-year-old’s plight so he said on his Twitter account that he would change his name so that the tattoo was correct.
"@JoshKillner: Can't believe @domjpearson made The Metro with his 'Kolo Touro' tattoo. #lad http://t.co/BJkggXENwf" I will change my name
