Emmanuel Adebayor: Togo striker threatens to quit international football over pa

The 28-year-old striker has revealed that he and his team-mates have not been paid the money for playing against Morocco in a friendly international in Casablanca earlier this month.

Adebayor says that, if the current situation does not improve, then players will not play for Togo anymore.

"If this does not change, then I will retire from international football and many will stop playing for our country," he said.

"In our FA everyone thinks about their own pockets," Adebayor told Togo's Radio Frequence1. "Some players have not received their money, some have received half of it.

"Players come to me to ask about their money. It is a shame. I asked the Moroccan Federation how much they paid our Togolese FA. They told me that they paid €35,000 to President Ameyi.

"The president has the money because the Moroccan FA will not lie to me. If this continues, then no one will play for others to fill their pockets."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
