Assimiou Touré (born 1 January 1988 in Sokodé) is a Togolese football defender. He currently plays for KFC Uerdingen. He also holds a German passport.

Career[edit]

Touré joined Bayer Leverkusen in 2000 and became a member of their Bundesliga squad at the beginning of the 2006-2007 season, making his Bundesliga debut on 22 October 2006 against Hamburger SV. It was his only Bundesliga appearance that season, but he made almost 30 competitive appearances for Bayer Leverkusen's reserve team before going on loan to Osnabrück in August 2007. Three days before his Bundesliga debut, on 19 October 2006, he also made his UEFA Cup debut against Club Brugge.

Touré made five appearances for Osnabrück in the 2nd Bundesliga in September 2007, but sustained an injury in their match against St. Pauli at the end of the month and has been out ever since.

On 1 February 2010, the German second division club Arminia Bielefeld signed him from Bayer Leverkusen. Touré made his debut for the club against MSV Duisburg, although he only played the first half of the match. He left Bielefeld in 2011, and spent a year without a club before joining SV Babelsberg 03. After Babelsberg were relegated from the 3. Liga in 2013, he moved to KFC Uerdingen.

International career[edit]

He played for the German under-18 national team twice after receiving German passport in early 2006, but decided to play for his native Togo at senior level and was added to their squad for the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals in Germany, where he appeared in two of the team's three group matches. Touré was member of the 2010 African Cup of Nations squad, but after the attack on the team Togo withdrew from the tournament.[1]
