ROME – While players from all over the world are taking the field against coronavirus with donations, there is one who has decided to stand out from the crowd in at least a singular way.
The declarations of the attacker from Togo are reported by gazzetta.it.
“For those who say I don't make a donation: it's true I don't.
I do what I want to do, I eat what I want to eat and that's the most important thing.
There will be people who will criticize me for not having created a foundation in Lomé.
But it seems that I was the one who brought the virus to Lomé.
It is a very unfortunate situation, but it is so and it is the country that is so.
If you want you can compare me with Didier Drogba or Samuel Eto'o, but unfortunately I'm not Didier Drogba or Samuel Eto'o.
I am Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor and I will always do what I want. "
When the Togo coach of Adebayor was attacked while crossing the Angolan border.
On January 8, 2010, the Togolese coach that crossed the Angolan border to compete in the 2010 African Nations Cup, suffered an attack with a final death toll and three injuries.
Adebayor was unscathed by stating that he was in shock after this event.
Following this, on April 12, 2010, at the age of 26, he communicated through the official Manchester City website to leave the national team.
In November 2011, however, he returned to his decision after receiving reassurances from the Togolese federation regarding security. (sources gazzetta.it and Wikipedia).
