Ex-Arsenal player, Emmanuel Adebayor has come out to explain why he has not made any donation to his country during the coronavirus pandemic.
Adebayor revealed that he does not plan to join his African compatriots like Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba in giving out cash or relief materials to his country or the continent.
According to him, he decides what to do with his wealth because he did bot bring the virus to Africa.
He added that he is sorry that people compare him with Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba but he is not them and he does not intend to change his stance on not donating.
His words, “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.”
