10 Things Crystal Palace Fans Need To Know About Emmanuel Adebayor
10. He Loves A Wind Up
When Emmanuel Adebayor left Arsenal in 2009, he did so under a cloud of acrimony. He abandoned Arsene Wenger's project of trying to win the league with children and chose instead to join Manchester City's project of trying to win the league by spending £1 billion. In his first game against his old club, he received abuse for the entire game which meant only one thing: he was going to score. When he did, he wasted no time in running the length of the pitch to slide on his knees in front of the travelling Arsenal fans to rub their noses in defeat, winding the Arsenal fans up so much they swore a lot.
