Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor is considering quitting international football.

Adebayor has threatened to quit playing for Togo unless an ongoing pay dispute can be resolved.

The 28-year-old forward claims that he and his team-mates have not been paid for playing against Morocco earlier this month.

"If this does not change, then I will retire from international football and many will stop playing for our country," Adebayor told 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."
