Man City striker Adebayor stunned by Togo ban

Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor cannot believe Togo's outrageous ban.

Adebayor called for African Football chief Issa Hayatou to quit after he banned Togo from the next two African Nations Cups.

The Manchester City star and his Togo team-mates withdrew from the tournament in Angola following a gun attack.

But Togo have been punished for "political interference" after its government told the players to go home.

Adebayor said: "Mr Hayatou must clear off because this decision is monstrous."
