Emmanuel Adebayor Quits International Football

Sensational news are out and it has been reported that Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor has announced his retirement from international football.

It is said that Adebayor has made the decision in the wake of the attack on the Togo team during this year’s African Nations Cup, in which three people were killed.

A statement from the 26-year-old on the club’s official website read: “Following the tragic events during January’s African Cup of Nations, in which two of my fellow countrymen were killed by terrorists in Angola, I have made the very difficult decision to retire from international football.

“I have weighed up my feelings in the weeks and months since the attack and I am still haunted by the events which I witnessed on that horrible afternoon on the Togo team bus.

“We were just footballers going to play a football match and represent our country, yet we were attacked by people who wanted to kill us all.

“It is a moment I will never forget and one I never want to experience again.”
