Emmanuel Adebayor could be on the move

Published Add your comment

After yesterday’s news of Emmanuel Adebayor being granted leave on ‘personal grounds’, we take a look back at where it all went wrong for Adebayor.

Adebayor arrived at Arsenal in 2006, for a fee rumoured to be around £3 million. He finished his first season at the Gunners with four goals in ten games.

Although Adebayor scored over 60 goals in just under 140 games for the Gunners. His controversial attitude was always there to be seen, with him seeing red against Chelsea in the 2007 League Cup final for allegedly throwing a punch at Frank Lampard.

The goals continued to flow, but as did the controversy surrounding this talented youngster. In a League Cup final defeat to Tottenham in 2008, Adebayor clashed with his own teammate Nicklas Bendtner causing a nose bleed.

Then of course in 2009, when Adebayor ran the length of the field after scoring for new side Manchester City, just to celebrate in front of the Arsenal fans. He also received a three match ban after kicking former teammate Robin van Persie.

Now after his most recent comments about how it is easier for Spurs to play away from home because of the fans' criticism, what is next for the former African player of the year?

After being allowed to leave on ‘personal grounds’, he will re-join up with the Tottenham squad next month, but who knows where he will go from there. He looks to have fallen out of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans so possibly could be searching for a new club in January.
