Emmanuel Adebayor made sure that he would go down in Arsenal history as a player that was disliked by everyone, but it seems he is keen on continuing to stoke the flames of the fire that has since been burnt out.
Indeed, many Gooners will think their former striker is irrelevant now and is just a blotch on their past, although those who look for the best betting online sites available might want to consider that he does still play his football for Turkish giants Istanbul Basaksehir, therefore perhaps they may want to think of another team to bet on.
However, the former Arsenal man appears to be continuing with his hate for the club by participating in interviews that certainly does not help things currently being experienced at the club.
Having scored 62 goals and providing 24 assists in 144 appearances for the club, it seems he still holds a grudge over Arsene Wenger after the legendary boss told him he had no future at the Emirates Stadium.
Of course, Arsenal sold him in 2009 when he signed for Manchester City and decided to go on a run to the other end of the pitch and celebrate in front of the Gooners who had travelled that afternoon after netting a winner in the last minute; an action that would later cost him £25,000.
Speaking about the boss, he stated that Jose Mourinho was the best he had whereas Wenger was “fake” and the reason he has the hate for Arsenal.
“Mourinho is the one of the managers I loved and will always love,” Adebayor said to Turkish television programme Beyond The Game.
“He is one of the [most] honest managers I have met in my career, which is crazy because most of the managers are all kind of fake.
“As an example, I had a meeting with Arsene Wenger in his office when he told me I had to leave because he didn’t see my future anymore in Arsenal.
“So I didn’t have any other choice than joining Man City, who I was very happy to join.
“And the next day when I joined Manchester City I saw him doing a press conference in London saying that I wanted to leave because the money was big and everything and since that day that is where the hate for Arsenal came from.”
Now, whilst that was over 10 years ago, it seems he could not keep from sticking his oar in amid the ongoing situation that surrounds Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mikel Arteta after the Gabon international was banished from the squad due to a lack of discipline.
Adebayor believes the former Borussia Dortmund striker’s time at the Emirates is up, perhaps suggesting that bettors who have a betting bonus should look to place it on the Gabon international to arrive at a different club, whilst also leaving a scathing attack on the Gunners in the process.
“I know he’s going through a lot, because that’s Arsenal for you,” he said to Sky Sports News.
“They never knew how to forgive, so I know he went through a lot. He’s a fantastic player, I wish him all the best – I’ve sent him a message already.
“We just want him to bounce back. Whether we like it or not, he’s an African brother and we want him to keep representing Africa the way he was doing before.
“I don’t think so (if Aubameyang can succeed at Arsenal), this is what I know because it happened to me also.
“Not in the same way but in Arsenal, a way back I would be surprised [to see]. But he’s a great player so let’s see how it ends up.”
One thing you would have to agree on with Adebayor is that Aubameyang’s career at Arsenal does appear to have come to an end, although it would be hard to back the idea that they never forgive, especially when you look at everything that Granit Xhaka has gone through whilst wearing the club’s colours.
