Adebayor: I will not celebrate a Spurs goal vs Arsenal


Emmanuel Adebayor - Tottenham Hotspur News

Emmanuel Adebayor admits that he regrets celebrating in front of the Arsenal fans and insists that he will not do the same if he scores for Spurs tomorrow.

Adebayor was in the headlines when he sprinted towards the Arsenal fans when he scored as a Manchester City player.

He told talkSPORT: “What happened two years ago was an accident and I do apologise to all the fans of Arsenal. Sometime the emotions, we cannot control them, we are all human beings.

“I regret what I have done and I say sorry to everyone but at the end of the day sorry doesn’t change anything. For me it’s over.

“I’m looking forward to playing against Arsenal again on Sunday but believe me, if I have a chance to score, trust me I will score but as for the celebration, never in my life will I do something like that again.

“It will be a funny game [on Sunday], it’ll be fantastic. I have a chance to play against Arsenal again, the club that gave me the chance to be where I am today. I have a huge respect for the club.”

“I’m having a good time at training every day,” he added. “We’re having a big laugh and I find myself already in the squad as if I have been playing for Tottenham for ages.

“We defend together and we attack together. We have a lot of good players, Gareth Bale, Benoit Assou-ekotto and Luka Modric, they’re all fantastic players.”
