Emmanuel Adebayor spoke of what a lot of Africans have been talking in shadows, it the truth we have been scared to expose even though we live in it. He is known for speaking his mind he once again did what he's known for.
"I distance myself from African football because of corruption and way of doing things that side. I only honor my country To go. And if they invited me to any event that has anything to do with CAF i won't show up because of the leaders of the organization. "
" How is Sadio Mane winning CAF Best Player Of The Year when he's not African based, Lionel Messi has never won any continental individual trophy in his continent. In my football years I've seen European players who were amazing and they played in America they never made the nominees. But in Africa an African who is based in Europe and then he wins African awards. How is that? "
"players like should be honored in FIFA awards regardless of their continents because that's just what FIFA is for. In Brazil Neymar can't win Brazilian player of the year, so when they include all the countries in that continent and make Neymar the best player what about the players who are based in that continent.
"CAF stands for Confederation Of African Football. How Salah and Sadio win it is way out of my worst imagination. That award belongs to African players. You can't separate it. Africa is a hell hole"
Well his comments met mixed reactions as some were backing him stating Caf is indeed corrupt and lacking proper leadership, others however were questioning his comments asking if what his saying is true why did he accepted the award in 2008 on what they describe as Abotreka of Egypt deserved it more. Well you can tell us what you think on the comment section.
