Baggage-less Man City striker borrowed Gunners top

Emmanuel Adebayor caused quite a stir yesterday after giving an interview about his ordeal in the Togo gun attack wearing an Arsenal polo shirt. The Manchester City star has now explained his controversial choice of fashion by claiming he is still in a state of confusion after his ordeal.

He said: “I realised this morning when I woke up that I was wearing an Arsenal shirt yesterday. What happened was that on the Angola border, we left all our baggage on the bus and ran away. So I had nothing to wear and the first person I asked gave me that shirt.

“I didn’t even realise what I was wearing. Even yesterday, instead of going to my room to sleep I went to the wrong room. Everyone is confused about what happened. In our heads we don’t know what we are doing.”

Are you going to let him off the hook City fans?

    I’m no huge fan of adebayor but if slack should ever be cut i’d say now might be the time.

    The person that gave him the shirt must of known what they were doing…

    seems a bit odd really – who else in the togo team would happen to have an arsenal polo shirt? don’t think it’s impossible that it’s actually his own shirt

    oops – submitted early. what i meant to say was – why lie?
