Adebayor losing it at Spurs as spat with family rages

Tottenham Hostspurs over the weekend returned to winning ways but it was without their African striker, Emmanuel Adebayor, who has been in the news for all the “wrong” reasons in the past days.

The former African footballer amongst other things is being accused of labelling his mother a witch and also neglecting his family despite the abundance of wealth at his disposal.

The situation is no doubt taking its toll on Adebayor who in recent weeks has been condemned to the bench at his English club.

The former African footballer of the year has indeed given a stout defense of his actions while making it clear all is not well between him and his immediate family.

“Obviously I’m not a pastor; I am a footballer so I cannot point out a witch,” Adebayor told Ghana Radio Peace FM when he was asked if he indeed called his mother a witch.

He continued: “..I never sacked my mum from the house; she decided to leave the house…But how am I going to be in touch with my mum if my mum is the one telling everyone that my work will not go forward, so I will just be on my side and do my thing”.

“They should stop talking, they should stop doing Juju on me; they should leave me alone…The one talking there and calling herself my sister I bought a house in East Legon for $1.2m…can you imagine that sister went to rent the house without my knowledge?” Adebayor said.

Known to be a philanthropist who freely gives to those who are not even related to him, Adebayor argues that he has empowered his family members well enough for them to take care of themselves even as he fumed that his family has already shared all his belongings even though he is still alive.

 “They should do that, let them work too, I work hard for my money …Imagine they shared my houses, they shared my cars, they say if he dies this car is for you, this house is for you, can you imagine?”

“Right now they don’t need money…If they claim I am not looking after my mother, we are seven and so why can’t the rest do it?

With just two goals to his name this season and also being in the bad books of Spurs fans, Adebayor is being touted for a move away from England sooner than later.

However, the lanky striker who seems to have a thick skin for criticisms has promised to put behind all the distractions coming off the pitch as he attempts to show the form that earned him the coveted African footballer of the year award in 2008.

    Sorry Adebayor, but you need to have a decent advisor. I agree if you don’t wanna look after your siblings because they are mature enough, but suspecting your mum as a witch should be something personal, not the whole world news. If your mum does juju on you or is a juju adept that means she has been doing it before you were born and don’t get me wrong if l say that you have been to juju’s person at least once in your life. Now see how people will look at you. It’s a shame to treat your mum that way in front of the whole world. Even if it’s true that she is a witch, did you forget what she has done for you before you get at your current situation? You’re a nice person, but you don’t know when to talk and when to shut it off. I’m a big fan of you. I wish l can see you every weekend on the pitch, but you’re digging yourself day after day with clumsy declarations. Sorry once again, but you need to think like a professional and react decently following the status of great player you’ve been given. Otherwise l will suggest you to quit the high level so that your name doesn’t remain a disgrace forever in the football history.


    I thank Lord Jesus for my family.
