Tottenham striker Adebayor explains AFCON flight fiasco

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has explained away his problems over returning from the African Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Spurs had to send a private jet to collect him FOUR DAYS after Togo had been knocked out of the Cup.

He said: "In South Africa there were no planes. I can get a private jet but I don't want to abandon my team.

"Togo is not Ivory Coast. When they went out, the president of their federation sent them a plane to get back.

"It took us four days to get a plane to Togo. That's not my fault, I can't just put wings on my body and fly to London."
