Emmanuel Adebayor and Manchester City have accepted a Football Association charge of violent conduct. The Togo international has decided against contesting the decision, with City revealing that despite still having reservations about the incident in question they too will accept any punishment handed out to their player.
"Manchester City announce that both the club and Emmanuel Adebayor have reluctantly accepted the violent conduct charge laid by the Football Association in the wake of the victory over Arsenal," read a statement on the club's official website.
"The player strongly maintains that he did not intend to act in a violent manner.
"He apologised on the day to Robin van Persie personally and to the wider public for the outcome of the challenge.
"We await the findings of the FA's Disciplinary Panel which is due to meet tomorrow."
