Adebayor Ban saga Drags On

Adebayor Ban saga Drags On

The big stink which was kicked up by Arsenal striker Manu Adebayor and two of his Togo team mates at last summers World Cup has NOT been resolved, according to Adebayoe himself.

The players didn't recieve around £30,000 in bounuses that they were promised. A massive row ensued and Adebyaor was suspended from international duty, along with Kader Cougbadja and Nibombe Dare.

Last week the Togo FA issued a statement saying that the ban on the trio had been lifted and they were free to return to the Togo national team.

Adebayor has revealed that this is not the case, saying that he has not had any letter informing him that he can return to international duty.

'I have not received any letters or decision from the federation lifting the suspension. It's through the media that I learnt about this,' Adebayor told Togolese radio station Sport Fm.


'I have been in Lome for a week and no-one has approached me. In this situation I cannot rejoin the national squad.'

The Togo Fa have wasted no time in hitting back at Adebayor, releasing a further statement saying: 'We sent him (Adebayor) notification of the lifting of the suspension through an intermediary. He sent it back,' said federation manager Zep Kuete, who also informed the press that Arsenal had been informed of the change in circumstances.
