Emmanuel Adebayor regrets his spell with Crystal Palace

Premier League legend Emmanuel Adebayor admits he regrets his spell with Crystal Palace.

The Togo striker spent ten seasons with Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham.

He also played for Real Madrid, Metz and Monaco, and has been with little-known Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir since January.

Adebayor, 33, told L'Equipe: "I truly experienced some beautiful moments in England, at the heart of the country's best teams.

"I was happy over there, and my family was as well.

"The only mistake I made was to sign for Crystal Palace in January 2016.

"I made the decision to please my advisers.

"They were telling me: 'Manu, you've got to get back playing again!'

"But it is definitely the worst decision I have made in my entire career."
