Emmanuel Adebayor: What he said, really meant and definitely didn’t

Emmanuel Adebayor chased a ball for his first ever walk-about.

What he said:

“Anyway, I was in the church laying down and, around nine or 10 o’clock on the Sunday morning, I could hear children playing outside.Suddenly somebody kicked a ball into the church and the first person to stand up and run was me because I wanted to get that ball.”

Togolese footballer and Tottenham Hotspur forward Emmanuel Adebayor recounts how he was a late bloomer when it came to walking as a child. The young Adebayor had not toddled yet in his fourth year. His mother travelled all over the Dark Continent seeking a cure.

What he really meant:

“Believe it or not, I was meant for soccer and soccer for me. Ask my mother.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Actually, I couldn’t stand the long-winded sermon by the priest on the pulpit and I simply grabbed the first opportunity to go walk-about.”
