Emmanuel Adebayor is not popular with fans of either Arsenal or Tottenham. However, there’s no disputing his talent.Brought to Arsenal from Monaco in early 2006, the troubled striker enjoyed a largely positive three-and-a-half years as a Gunner.
Unfortunately, his head was turned and he eventually moved to Manchester City in 2009.Adebayor’s relationship with the Arsenal supporters turned sour after the infamous pitch-long-sprint-and-knee-slide goal celebration that followed his goal against them for Manchester City in 2009.
Those antics no doubt softened the blow for Spurs fans upon the striker’s arrival at White Hart Lane a few years later.
