Tottenham striker Adebayor: Arsenal chants left me disappointed

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor was hurt by the ugly chants hurled his way by Arsenal fans on Sunday.

Gunners fans sang songs mocking the machine-gun attack on the Togo team last year, which left three of his friends dead.

But Tottenham's on-loan striker, 27, who moved from Arsenal to Manchester City in 2009, said: "The songs that they sung about me were very bad but was I surprised? No. Disappointed? Yes.

"Obviously it was all meant to hurt me, to upset me, to anger me. But I am so glad I kept my dignity in the face of people behaving like that."
