Emmanuel Adebayor has apologised to Arsenal fans for his behaviour after scoring against his former club for Manchester City in 2009.

The former Arsenal player ran the full length of the pitch to celebrate in front of travelling Arsenal fans and almost inciting a riot. Adebayor claimed his celebration was in anger after Arsenal fans chanted derogatory things about his parents (ironically enough the song the Spurs fans sang to him on many occasions).

However the Ivorian, ahead of the North London derby on Sunday, has apologised for his actions.

‘What happened two years ago was an accident and I do apologise to all the fans of Arsenal. Sometime the emotions, we cannot control them, we are all human beings.

‘I regret what I have done and I say sorry to everyone but at the end of the day sorry doesn`t change anything. For me it`s over.

‘I’m looking forward to playing against Arsenal again on Sunday but believe me, if I have a chance to score, trust me I will score but as for the celebration, never in my life will I do something like that again.’


To be honest, I don`t think it will matter one way or the other. No doubt he`ll get some abuse, but no more than any other Spurs player. So much water has gone under the bridge no one really cares about him any more.

I just couldn`t resist the article title 🙂
