Adebayor is a mentalist.

Look at those eyes. Utterly mental.

Last night, he surprisingly pulled out of Togo’s first match of the African Cup of Nations at the last minute. Named in the starting line-up, he was nowhere to be seen at kick-off. Togo coach Stephen Keshi explains:

“This morning I said to Adebayor that he wouldn’t play because he hadn’t played in a long time and because he had spent the last week sorting out his contract with Arsenal,” said Keshi.

“Just before the game, I told him I was putting him in the team and then he said he didn’t want to play”.

Adebayor explains: “We lost yesterday and I do not know why I did not start. I was shocked – the main goalscorer of the team [being left out] – that is a joke.”

And not, in Adebayor’s mind, a very funny joke:

“The African Cup of Nations is finished for me. I am leaving the team. I will call Wenger and, if he is happy for me to go to Arsenal, I will go and start my career.”

Well, that might be nice, considering how crap we were yesterday. But now reports suggest he’s training with the Togo squad again?! We shouldn’t be surprised that Ade is completely insane. The only reason we were ever able to sign him was because he had a massive falling out with his previous club, Monaco. Then there’s this quote:

“If I have to kill someone to reach Germany next year, I will.”

I know we wanted more agression, but come on…
