Togolese International, Emmanuel Adebayor has stated that he didn’t make any humanitarian or relief donations for fight against the Coronavirus pandemic and has no plans to do so.
Adebayor who had played for Arsenal, Real Madrid, Manchester City and regarded as one of Africa’s richest footballers with a choice collection of cars and mansions in Africa and Europe, says he won’t be joining his African compatriots like Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba in donating cash or relief materials to his home nation, Togo.
Adebayor went on to say that he does whatever he likes with his money and won’t be coerced into making any donations because he didn’t bring coronavirus to Togo.
He wrote: “For those of you who say I don’t donate, let me be very clear, I don’t donate. It is very simple,’
“I do what I want and eat what I want. Later, there will be people who will criticise me for the fact that I did not make a donation in Lome (capital of Togo).’
“Some think that I was the one who introduced the virus in Lome. It is very unfortunate, but this country is like that.’
“I’m sorry that people compare me to Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba by asking me why I don’t have a foundation or why I don’t donate, as if I was the one who brought the coronavirus to Togo.
“I am neither the one nor the other, I am me, Sheyi Emmanuel Adebayor and I will always do what I want. A word of advice for the guys regarding donations, I will not do that. Everything is clear and very simple. Thank you and good day.”
