Tottenham striker Adebayor rules out ending international retirement

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has indicated there's no chance of him reversing his international retirement with Togo.

Togo officials claim that Adebayor is merely annoyed about bonus payments.

But the player, who has 54 caps, told The Sun: "I am hearing people saying I do not want to go to the African Nations Cup because of unpaid bonuses.

"I do not need a bonus from Togo - it is £1,000 per game.

"I would not refuse to play for my country over money. It is all about the organisation - or lack of it.

"I was on the bus in Angola when people died in front of me. I held them as they died.

"Even the government do not want to pay for the treatment for the people who survived. It is not right."
