GIF It: Emmanuel Adebayor’s woeful penalty miss
Oh dear, this really does rather sum up Emmanuel Adebayor.
As Spurs lost to Basel on penalties in the quarter final of the Europa League, Twitter as one made the prediction that Adebayor would miss his spot kick, and prescient that turned out to be.
The Togolese striker skied his penalty sky high over the bar, but it was his reaction to the miss that will grate with Spurs fans, as Adebayor simply smiled a cheeky grin.
And that’s why giving you a permanent contract after a loan last season was a silly old idea.
