Emmanuel Adebayor to take part in African Nations Cup
Striker involved in new dispute with Togolese Football Federation
Emmanuel Adebayor will take part in the African Nations Cup for Togo
despite reports the Tottenham striker had performed yet another U-turn
and had pulled out of the squad.
Reports in France this morning claimed Adebayor had withdrawn from Togo's squad for the tournament after a row with the country's coaching staff, but Press Association Sport understands the striker will depart for South Africa as planned following tomorrow's game against QPR.
Adebayor had originally snubbed his country's call amid fears over team security and unpaid bonuses, but reversed his decision earlier this week following a meeting with the country's president.
Tottenham will be without Adebayor for up to five matches, but manager Andre Villas-Boas insisted yesterday that he does not need to enter the transfer market to plug the gap left by the former Arsenal hitman.
