Former Arsenal and Manchester City Star Emmanuel Adebayor Appointed Tribal Chief in Native Togo

Former Arsenal and Manchester City Star Emmanuel Adebayor Appointed Tribal Chief in Native Togo

Emmanuel Adebayor has just cemented his place as one of the craziest players to ever grace the beautiful game after being appointed as chief of a tribe in Togo.

The 33-year-old was never far away from the headlines during his time in the Premier League.

Adebayor made his name at Arsenal after signing from Monaco in 2006.

But after three years with the London club, the forward made a controversial move to Manchester City and became the most hated man at the Emirates after THAT celebration.

It didn’t help matters that Adebayor returned to the Premier League after a short loan spell with Real Madrid to sign for Tottenham.

However, now playing with İstanbul Basaksehir, the former Gooner is spending 10 days in his native Togo, taking part in a fundraising tour.

And he was appointed as a tribal chief after being recognised for his humanitarian work in the west African nation where he has pledged to support 90 children for a year.

Adebayor could grace the Champions League once agains next season after Basaksehir defied the odds to finish second in the Turkish Super Lig.
