Emmanuel Adebayor's honest interview after crazy celebration for Man City vs Arsenal

Emmanuel Adebayor produced his crazy celebration vs Arsenal 12 years ago

On September 12, 2009, Emmanuel Adebayor produced the craziest celebration in Premier League history.

The Togolese was in the starting lineup for Manchester City's clash against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.

Adebayor, of course, played for Arsenal between 2006-2009 before departing to The Citizens in a £25 million deal.

He was fired up in his first game against his former club.

Arsenal fans were giving Adebayor a hard time as they made their feelings known about his departure.

But Adebayor got his own back in the 80th minute as he headed home to give his side a 3-1 lead.

The striker then produced the most iconic celebration in Premier League history.

Adebayor turned around, ran the length off the pitch and then did a knee-slide in front of the Arsenal fans.

The away supporters threw all sorts of projectiles at him but he just stayed there motionless with his arms outstretched.

It was a truly incredible celebration and you can watch it below:

Adebayor was booked for his troubles.

He would go on to express his regret in his post-match interview. Even he couldn't believe what he had done.

"Yeah for sure [I lost my head]," he admitted. "I think I could not do what I have done. But you know, it's like the emotion took over me. The frustration is out of me. I feel sorry for what I have done. But as a player, we just focus on what we're doing and scoring.

"The way people judge me for what I haven't done. Scoring goals again today made me feel free in my body. I think I do a little bit more of what I have to do but I'm very sorry for doing what I have done.

"We are all human beings, we have to do a mistake to be better tomorrow. I have done a big mistake today. And I think tomorrow, these things will never happen anymore."
