COVID-19: “it is my money and I choose what to do with it, don’t compare me to Drogba and Eto,i will not donate”–Adebayor

Emmanuel Adebayor has defended his refusal to donate to Togo capital Lome’s coronavirus battle and distanced himself from fellow African football stars Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o.

The 36-year-old, who now plays for Olimpia in Paraguay, said he does not want to be compared with Drogba and Eto’o and feels criticised because he has not established a foundation in his hometown.

“I am compared with Drogba and Eto’o,” he said during a Facebook Live. “However, I am neither of them. I am Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor and I will always do what I want.

“I do what I want, I eat what I want, and this is the most important thing. Of course, there will be those who criticise me because I did not create a foundation in Lome.”

The former Manchester City and Arsenal forward said he will not make a donation after feeling mistreated.

“For those saying I do not donate, let me be very clear: I do not donate,” he added. “It is very simple.

“It is like some people believe that I brought coronavirus to Lome. It is very unfortunate but that is how it is and that is how this country is.”

Adebayor also said that he would not be pressured by others to spend his own money.
