Cast your mind back to the 18th of July. Manchester City spent a reported £25 million on Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor. My initial thoughts were that it was a bit much for a player who blows hot and cold.
Two months and four goals later, I couldn’t fault the guy. He was working his socks off for the team and he became an instant hero amongst the City faithful.
Ever since his infamous stamp on Robin Van Persie’s face and the ban which followed, Adebayor has been a different player. The 25-year old has managed just 2 goals since the middle of September, however it’s not just the lack of goals which has got me so rilled.
The Togolese international looks totally disinterested when playing. Tonight’s performance against Tottenham really summed up his time at City. Whenever he looked like he was going to do something decent, he managed to mess it all up by passing it to someone in a Spurs shirt.
£25 million really is starting to look a ridiculous sum for a player as frustrating as Adebayor.
Spurs fans were singing it and I would have to agree with them. “What a waste of money.”
