Tottenham striker Adebayor in Africa Cup of Nations U-turn
The Togo international was expected not to join up with his nation's Afcon squad due to security worries, but the 28-year-old has now flown to Ghana for pre-tournament training
Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has flown out to Ghana to meet up with Togo's national squad ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations later this month.
The move represents a U-turn for the Spurs forward after threatening not to play for his country amid a row over team security and unpaid bonuses.
Mananger Didier Six spoke out in December to try and change Adebayor’s mind, adding that that his involvement in the tournament is vital to Togo’s ambitions.
"Of course we're in the African Nations Cup with Adebayor, we will be together in South Africa," Ameyi Gabriel, the president of the Togo Football Federation told Radio Algeria International.
"It is very important to have him there because he is our player and captain of the team."
Adebayor could miss up to four matches for Tottenham if Les Eperviers progress to the final of the competition – leaving Jermain Defoe as Andre Villas-Boas' only recognised first-team striker.
Togo have been grouped with Ivory Coast, Tunisia and Algeria in Group D.
