​Ex-Arsenal, Man City striker Adebayor on joining Crystal Palace: It was the 'worst decision of my career'

Former Arsenal, Man City striker Emmanuel Adebayor has said that joining Crystal Palace was the worst decision of his career.

The 33-yerar-old, who currently plays for Turkish side Başakşehir, joined the Eagles as a free agent in January 2016.

He could score only one goal in 12 league appearances for the Eagles in his six-month stint.

"I had some great experiences in England in clubs who are among the best in the country," Adebayor said.

"I was happy there, my family too.

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

"I did it just to please my entourage, who were saying to me: 'Manu, you have to start playing again!' It was the worst decision of my career."
