Togo keeper unhappy with taunting of Tottenham's Adebayor

The Togo keeper, whose career was ended after he was shot in the back, has called for fans guilty of abusive chanting at the north London derby to be punished, reports BBC Sport. Tottenham's Emmanuel Adebayor was taunted by some Arsenal fans about the Togo team being attacked before the Africa Cup of Nations in 2010.

"By chanting that stuff it's as if they're condoning terrorism," Kodjovi Obilale told the World Football show.

"I was hurt on that bus. Those people should be severely punished."

He continued: "It's very bad, they went too far. People lost their lives. We're talking about a loss of life. I don't even know what Adebayor has done wrong. He plays football that's all."

Two members of the Togo party were killed in the attack.

Both managers have condemned abusive chanting from fans during Spurs' 2-1 win.

Obilale added: "I don't think Arsenal should be punished. But they should carry out an investigation and suspend those involved. If you let them get away with this, it'll just degenerate further."
