Tottenham’s Adebayor could step down from Togo duties

Emmanuel Adebayor has threatened to quit international football if the Togo Football Federation continues to fail to pay their players.

The Tottenham striker suggests the Togolese players who took on Morocco in a friendly earlier in November have not yet received payment and he has sent a strong warning to the federation regarding their plans for the future if this persists.

"If this does not change, then I will retire from international football and many will stop playing for our country," he Togo's Radio Frequence1.

"In our FA everyone thinks about their own pockets. Some players have not received their money, some have received half of it.

"Players come to me to ask about their money. It is a shame. I asked the Moroccan Federation how much they paid our Togolese FA. They told me that they paid €35,000 to President Ameyi.

"The president has the money because the Moroccan FA will not lie to me. If this continues, then no one will play for others to fill their pockets."
