Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has blasted the Togo FA over his short-term retirement.

"Can you imagine staying at the airport for five, six, seven, even 10 hours doing nothing?," Adebayor wrote in the program for Arsenal's Premier League match against Tottenham on Wednesday.

"And the federation president never travelled with the players or stayed in the hotel with us.

"When the game's finished, who was going to pay the bill?

"Sometimes some of us players had to do it, and sometimes when I've not been there the players have been in the hall of the hotel for two or three hours ringing around all of Togo, asking where they could get the money to pay the bill."
