Istanbul Basaksehir striker Adebayor: Mourinho best manager I worked with. The worst was...

Istanbul Basaksehir striker Emmanuel Adebayor admits the one manager he struggled to get along with was Roberto Mancini at Manchester City.

Speaking with Hurriyet, Adebayor declared he was proud of the career he had established and the relationships made amongst a raft of the clubs - though with one exception.

"I dreamed of playing for Arsenal, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur and those dreams came true. Maybe I could still dream of winning the Ballon d'Or and hopefully that can come true. I am not very satisfied with my career, but I cannot complain either. I'm still alive, so I can still dream," said Adebayor.

"I scored for Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid, but at Crystal Palace that did not work. That makes me sad. I still remember why I did not succeed at Crystal Palace.

"The only trainer I never enjoyed was Roberto Mancini. I was not a fan of his training methods. The best was absolutely José Mourinho, he really has a passion for his profession."
