Adebayor quits Togo national team

Posted On Sunday, 2nd December 2012

Togo captain Emmanuel Adebayor has announced his retirement from the national team, one month to the start of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Tottenham Hotspur star played a pivotal role in the qualification of the Sparrow Hawks to South Africa after eliminating Gabon in October. 

“Togo international and captain of the Sparrow Hawks Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor hereby brings to the notice of the general public that he is suspending his international career with Togo team,” the player said in a statement released by his public relations officer Amedodji Blaise in Lome.

“The atmosphere currently prevailing within the Hawks will not help the team achieve its set out objectives,” the statement concluded.

Adebayor last week denounced the nonpayment of match bonuses to players after their 1-0 win over Morocco in an international friendly last month and called on the Togo football federation officials to justify the sum of €35 000 paid to the body by the Royal Moroccan Football Federation for the encounter.

The FA said the money was used to reimburse air tickets for players, pay hotel bills and other miscellaneous expenses, and was never meant to cover bonuses.

The 28-year-old quit international football in 2010 following a gunfire attack on Togo team bus in Angola but rescinded his decision this year.

  1. BABA says:

    What is wrong with this player? Why do you want to disrupt your country’s preparation? Remember you are the captain and must lead by examples. Really a black man

    • texas says:

      @BABA: This has nothing to do with being a Black Man. I am tired of some of you associating the Black race with what a single Black person does. If a white man had said what you just said, you will call him a racist. Enough of this petty talks. Haba!What is wrong with Ade making a decision that is good for him?

  2. Pop Man says:

    Baba, think again. You are disgraceful. Standing for your right and that of others makes you a discerning leader who needs to be commended.Blackness is even no crime, Sir. Your people should be ashamed of you, especially the way you think.

  3. junior mafia says:

    @baba u r a monkey wats wrong wit a captain standn up fo his team?..if u dnt speak up dey wil do it to u again

  4. prince says:

    so baba let me ask you den , will you sit down for someone to chop your money, if so then i guess no wonder why u claim adebayor is really a black man, btw what are u .

  5. KWAME PITO says:

    non-payment of players ah? Adebayor will not just get up a second time and say he is quitting togo again. It all has to do with pooor management and chop chop of players money. CORRUPTION. He is fighting a management issue. Anyway this has got nothing to do with Ghana football. We have gone through that before I am sure we have come the way a little bit.

  6. bornblack Germany says:

    Togo national team is disgrace to Africa they came 2006 world cup without a manager .boy are right .. only great leader will fight for his ppl..he is fighting for players….may some of players are local… and they not enough. Bab pls go and again …

  7. GH FUO, THINK BIG!!! says:

    WHAT HE SHOULD DO IS COMMUNICATE WITH HIS OTHER TEAMNMATES AND THE COACH TO BOYCOTT THE AFCON TOURNAMNT. THIS WAY CAF WILL RAIN DOWN ON THE TOGO SOCCER FEDERATION AND FINE THEM ETC. TO ISSUE A RETIREMENT IN NOT A GOOD IDEA. CONVINCE YOUR COACH AND TEAMMATES TO BOYCOTT THE TOURNAMNT INSTEAD.
