Adebayor in amazing blow-up with Man City boss Mancini

Emmanuel Adebayor has had a furious bust-up with Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini.

The Togo striker had to be restrained by players and staff after bursting into the Italian's training ground office with proof of a torn muscle, an injury Mancini had initially brushed off as nothing more than a dead leg.

Former Arsenal man Adebayor was dismayed to his boss thought he was feigning injury.

"It all kicked off between them," a City source told the News of the World. "There is nothing worse than a manager accusing a player of feigning an injury.

"Adebayor might not be playing well, but he would never be so unprofessional. He was furious."
