Adebayor 'going to African Nations Cup'

Published Add your comment

Togo claim Emmanuel Adebayor has changed his mind and will represent the country at the African Nations Cup.

Tottenham striker Adebayor said last year that he would not go to the tournament, which runs from January 19 to February 10 in South Africa, due to a row over team security and unpaid bonuses. But the 28-year-old appears to have had a change of heart, with reports in Africa suggesting the striker has flown to Ghana to meet up with the Hawks for their pre-tournament training camp.

"Of course we're in the African Nations Cup with Adebayor, we will be together in South Africa," head of the Togo Football Federation, Ameyi Gabriel, is reported to have told Radio Algeria International.
