Adebayor Puts Club before Country

By Kofi Owusu Aduonum - Ghanaian Chronicle

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has had a high profile falling-out with the Togo FA that could end up benefiting Arsenal tremendously this campaign.

The 24-year-old confirmed that he has not made himself available for this weekend's World Cup qualifier with Swaziland due to what he perceives to be a grave lack of professionalism of his country's FA.

"I have told Togo's governing body they have to change how they organise trips if they want me to play again," Adebayor told the Daily Star Sunday. "I am not retiring for good as I love my country - but I had to wait at an airport for 14 hours on my last trip. It is not normal and I can't let it happen again.
