Tottenham Adebayor to take part in African Nations Cup

Tottenham Adebayor to take part in African Nations Cup

Emmanuel Adebayor changed his mind on boycotting the African Nations Cup after he discussed the matter with the Togo’s president Faure Gnassingbe.

The Tottenham striker has been previously determined to boycott the tournament in South Africa due to the disagreement with Togo Football Association on the bonus payments for the players.

Adebayor was expected to stay at the club during winter after he publicly announced the decision to retire from football (which is his third ‘retirement’, by the way). However at the moment it looks as if he takes part in the Premier League clash against QPR on Saturday before joining his teammates ahead one week of the tournament kick-off.

Togo is set to play its opening game of the tournament against the much fancied Ivory Coast on January 22.
