As if Adebayor couldn’t get any more unpopular with Arsenal fans, he’s come out with this rubbish after leaving us for Manchester City:
â€œPeople who think that I have joined City for the money are wrong. If I had made a move for that reason then I would have been playing for Barcelona or Milan last season.
“I want to win silverware and trophies. That is my ambition.
“The team has quality and a manager who knows what he wants.”
This is despite being paid a reported Â£170k a week at Manchester City, almost double what he was on at Arsenal.
And he’s moved from a team that has regular Champions League football to a team that doesn’t. I have to laugh when he actually believes he could have been playing for Barcelona last season. This was a side that won the treble – Adebayor is kidding himself if he thinks that he’s on that level.
He’s ended up at Manchester City!
If Barcelona or Milan really wanted him then they would have got him.
And the idea that he’s left Arsenal to win trophies and not for the money is comical. How are Barcelona not on course for trophies? They’re the best side in Spain and the best side in Europe so why didn’t you leave last summer to ‘win trophies’ eh?
Pull the other one, Ade.
The sad fact is none of the big sides wanted you, and in the end you engineered your won demise at Arsenal.
I thought we’d heard enough of his idiocy over the last 12 months but it seems it isn’t going to end soon.
