Former Arsenal and Manchester City striker, Emmanuel Adebayor, has responded to those criticising him for not donating money to the Togolese government to support the fight against coronavirus in the tiny nation, saying he did not bring the coronavirus to Togo and as such he won’t be donating any money.
While many other footballing stars have made donations in their native countries, the nations where they play or even elsewhere, Adebayor won’t be following suit.
According to Adebayor, “For those who say that I don’t donate, leave me in peace,” he said in a Facebook Live video.”I do what I want and how I want.”Then there will be people who say I don’t donate.
“You can compare me with Didier Drogba or with Samuel Eto’o, but I’m not them. I’m Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor and I’ll always do what I want.”
The player also responded to the suggestions that he was the one who introduced coronavirus to his homeland, after returning from Paraguay where he is currently playing.
“Some think it was me who introduced it, which is a shame,” the former Monaco striker stated.
