Ex Team Mate Exposes Striker Emmanuel Adebayor, Calls him lazy

Emmanuel Adebayor remains a free agent after playing as captain for his country Togo at the Africa Cup of Nations, and the former Arsenal striker wants another shot at the English top flight after claiming he is blessed with ‘golden genes’.

The 32-year-old forward may not be thankful to former Crystal Palace team-mate Hangeland, however, following his rather humorous recollection of their time together both on the pitch and in training.

Speaking on Norwegian radio show Heia fotball, Hangeland recalled: “I only played with him for six months but here’s a quick story. I was playing for Fulham and he played for Spurs.

“We were attacking and I was marking Adebayor in the midfield. He suddenly said, “Ahhh, I’m hungry.” I replied, “What?”

“I can’t wait for the game to finish, I’m so hungry,” he said. Do you know a good restaurant in London, Hangeland?”

The former centre-back, who retired from professional football in August 2016, managed to stay focused on his game during that particular battle but was reminded of the striker’s insatiable appetite when the pair were reunited at Selhurst Park.

“Later when he came to Palace I started to realise where this came from,” Hangeland continued. “When we had strength workouts he would sit in the gym with just a cup of coffee and a muffin.

“He was being paid by [Manchester] City, Tottenham and Palace at the same time, and he was sitting in the gym drinking coffee. Incredible natural talent, but very lazy.”
