Emmanuel Adebayor is a player who has gone through huge highs and immense lows throughout his playing career.
The Togolese forward is 32 years old and he is a renowned controversial figure as he has experienced issues with different managers and this has led with Adebayor being dropped to the sidelines on occasions that he has been fully fit and available to play. And this has occurred with separate teams that he has played in.
Daniel Levy is one of the figures in the world of football that Emmanuel Adebayor has showed displeasure as the Togolese recently unveiled some of the problems that he had when performing with his former club Tottenham Hotspur.
Adebayor spent 4 seasons performing at the White Hart Stadium as a player of Tottenham Hotspur but as each season passed on, the Togolese forward was making fewer and fewer appearances and according to the Togolese forward, he had wanted to leave Tottenham Hotspur some time ago but Daniel Levy forced him to stay with the club despite the dissatisfaction that he was experiencing with the club.
“With the club itself, it wasn’t a good relationship with the chairman, Daniel Levy, as he made everything complicated. But at the end of the day, I know where I am from and if you want something, you have to stand strong for it, and I stand strong for what I think.’’ Adebayor said.
There was a point in time when Adebayor just couldn’t land a spot in the main team of Mauricio Pochettino and this was when the Togolese striker voiced his displeasure and wanted to make a move away from the club. When Adebayor attempted to make a loan deal to West Ham United, the transfer was blocked by the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur, Daniel Levy.
Fortunately for Adebayor, he was recently able to join Crystal Palace on a 6 month long deal which will last until the end of the season. This transfer was officially announced on January 26 as the Togolese continues expanding his already fairly extensive playing career.
