Adebayor unimpressed with level of fine

Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor believes the FA punishment handed down to him for celebrating his goal against Arsenal was 'excessive'. The FA handed out a suspended two-match ban to Adebayor and also fined the Togo ace £25,000 for the incident.

However, while he accepts his punishment, Adebayor believes the FA have been too harsh in their reaction to the matter.

"They have punished me for celebrating a goal and I accept it, but I think it is excessive," Adebayor told The People.

"But now I have to forget it and just think about scoring goals without any problems.

"If I play in the Emirates and score I will celebrate of course, but I will do it with my fans.

"I don't want to talk about Arsenal at the moment. I remind them that we beat them 4-2, that's all."
