Togo forward Emmanuel Adebayor has told his fans that he wouldn’t contribute towards the present medical pandemic in his homeland because he’s not the one “who brought the coronavirus to Togo”.
The former Arsenal star who is currently based in Paraguay at Olimpia club made the comments during an interview with his fans on Facebook Live.
He also said its not fair for people to compare him with other African football greats including Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba.
“I always do things consistent with the needs of my heart and not consistent with the words of others,” he explained.
“I am sorry people compare me to my friends Eto’o and Drogba by asking me why I don’t have a foundation and why I don’t donate as if i’m the one who brought the coronavirus to Togo.”
“I am Sheyi Adebayor, i’m neither of those and can never be. i will not be able to contribute. many thanks and good day .”
Drogba recently handed over his hospital in Abidjan to be used for treating coronavirus patients, while Eto’o has also been at the frontline of assisting struggling families.
