Adebayor in furious clash with Arsenal fan

Emmanuel Adebayor clashed with an Arsenal fan at an airport, it has been revealed.

The Sun says the Gunners striker had to be calmed down by security after a verbal attack by a Brit in Lagos.

Adebayor was returning from Nigeria last week when the man started hurling abuse at him.

Witnesses said the fan, in his 30s and claiming to be a London paramedic, accused the star of not pulling his weight.

Rilwan Adedapo, who saw the incident, told The Sun: "The guy started getting personal about how he should try harder.

"Ade tried to laugh it off. But the man started hurling abuse at him and used the F-word.

"He screamed 'You get paid £80,000 a week to put the ball in the back of the net and you're still f***ing rubbish. I pay good money for a season ticket to pay your wages.'

"Emmanuel completely lost it and had a right go back. He said 'I get £110,000 a week if you must know'. It just made the guy even more angry.

"If it wasn't for security dragging him away, it could have got a lot worse."
