Manchester City boss Mark Hughes jumped to the defence of Emmanuel Adebayor after his goal celebrations against Arsenal yesterday.

"We have to cut Emmanuel a bit of slack,” Hughes told City's website. “He is an emotional guy and was caught up in the moment. It was a fantastic goal and great finish. He has already apologised on camera and that is the right thing to do because obviously it can be provocative.

“We just have to understand that he is an emotional guy and he wanted to share the moment with the fans in the corner with whom he has a special affinity. It is the same area that the Arsenal fans were in so there is the potential for people to see it as the wrong thing to do. We recognise that and so does Ade.”
