Adebayor threatens to quit international football

first_imgTogolese striker Emmanuel Adebayor has threatened to quit international football if his country’s football federation continues refusing to pay its players the money it owes them.Adebayor says that he and his teammates have not been paid for playing in an international friendly in Casablanca, Morocco earlier this month.According to the Tottenham player, the Moroccan FA has confirmed paying an amount of 35,000 Euros to the Togolese FA as payment for the players, but the president of the Togolese FA has refused to release the money to the players.“In our FA, everyone thinks about their own pockets. Some players have not received their money, some have received half of it. If this does not change, then I will retire from international football and many will stop playing for our country,” said Adebayor.“Players come to me to ask about their money. It is a shame. I asked the Moroccan Federation how much they paid our Togolese FA. They told me that they paid €35,000 to President Ameyi. The president has the money because the Moroccan FA will not lie to me. If this continues, then no one will play for others to fill their pockets.”Striker Emmanuel Adebayor scored the only goal of that game as Togo defeated the Moroccans 1-0 .last_img
