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."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
