Arsenal Striker In Quit Threat!

Arsenal Striker In Quit Threat!

Arsenal striker Manu Adebayor has made a sensational threat to quit international football if the Togo FA does not organize its self better.

Adebayor has become a vital part of the Togo national side, scoring some vital goals in their qualification for the World Cup last summer.

The lanky striker won Togo`s best foreign-based player of the year for 2006 after a good season spent between Monaco and Arsenal.

You only have to watch him for 5 minutes to see he has a great passion for the game but the 22-year-ol is clearly at the end of his tether.

Speaking to FIFA Magazine Manu said: 'If things do not change for the better over the next six months to a year, I think I may end my international career.

'I have to think of myself first, even though playing for the national team is very important to me.

'While I am prepared to give everything to my country, if they cannot organise things well, I will have to make a decision that is best for my life.'

It would clearly be of benefit to Arsenal, one less player away on international duty is one fitter player. It would also mean one less player lost for 6 weeks when the African Championships come around.

Shades of Roy Keane. I think it's one of those things that's very easy to criticise from the outside, but ultimately we don't know what is happening internally. From what I can gather most of the Togolese national team feel this way.

Haha, I knew it couldn't have been about him quitting the Gunners...but I was interested in seeing what it did entail. Technically speaking the headline is still accurate!
