Emmanuel Adebayor: On his way to Africa, say Togo

Emmanuel Adebayor: On his way to Africa, say Togo

Tottenham striker Adebayor said last year that he would not play at the tournament - which runs from January 19 to February 10 in South Africa - because of a row over team security and unpaid bonuses.

But Togo now claim that the 28-year-old striker has already flown out to Ghana for a pre-tournament training camp.

"Of course we're in the African Nations Cup with Adebayor, we will be together in South Africa," head of the Togo Football Federation, Ameyi Gabriel, is reported to have told Radio Algeria International.

"It is very important to have him there because he is our player and captain of the team."

Adebayor's absence would leave Spurs with just one recognised striker in Jermain Defoe.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas has regularly claimed he does not need to add another striker to his squad in the January transfer window, but he has been linked with another bid for Internacional and Brazil forward Leandro Damiao in recent days.

It is not known whether Adebayor will return to London for Saturday's home game against QPR or remain with the Sparrow Hawks.

Should Togo make the final of the competition, Adebayor will miss four Tottenham matches, but they are in a tough group with Ivory Coast, Tunisia and Algeria.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
