Lacina Traoré toured around Russian city with Armenian driver

Ivorian national football team and Russia’s FC Anzhi Makhachkala striker Lacina Traoré spoke about his daily life in an interview with sovsport.ru

“I consider myself a modest man. I can drive around with any model car. When I had just moved to [FC] Kuban [of Krasnodar, Russia], an elderly Armenian driver, Lyova, used to take me to the club’s sports complex with his Zhiguli [that is, Lada]. When I bought my own car, Lyova still frequently transported me with his Zhiguli,” sovsport.ru quotes Lacina Traoré as saying.       

To note, at 2.03 meters (6 ft 8 in) tall, Traoré is among the tallest professional football players in the world.
