Togo's Adebayor Stuck In Quarantine In Benin
LISTEN MAR 25, 2020

Former Manchester City, Real Madrid and Togo international forward Emmanuel Adebayor is stuck in quarantine in Benin over the coronavirus pandemic, his Paraguayan club Olimpia said on social media.

The 36-year-old "took the decision to return to his country for the duration of the quarantine period declared by the government" of Paraguay, said Olimpia late on Monday.

However, in trying to return home he was put in quarantine in a hotel in the port of Cotonou, the largest city in Benin, alongside another 84 travelers, Olimpia said.

"His decision was to spend this time with his family," Olimpia said of Adebayor's attempts to make the long journey from Paraguay to Togo.

Like much of Latin America, Paraguay is in partial shut down and has imposed a nighttime curfew.

The former Togo forward, who also played for Arsenal, Tottenham and Crystal Palace during a decade-long stay in the English Premier League, made a surprise move to the Paraguayan champions in February having left Turks Kayserispor in December.
