Togo appear to have ‘dumped’ Emmanuel Adebayor, their team coach Tom Saintfiet even comparing the Tottenham Hotspur outcast to a bad date.
In a bizarre sexist outburst, Saintfiet lashed out at the player’s refusal to respond to an international call-up having been stripped of the captain’s armband.
It is alleged that Adebayor didn’t reply to emails or text messages, which come to think of it sounds like he’s the one doing the dumping here.
If you are dating a woman who does not want to respond positively, then you must look for another woman. For me, it is clear that he is a player who does not want to play for his country any more.
It’s a problematic parallel.
