'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Why I Had To Leave Manchester City

Emmanuel Adebayor admits he had no choice but to quit Manchester City after Roberto Mancini lost faith in him.

The ex-Arsenal flop left Eastlands on Wednesday and joined Real Madrid on loan until the end of the season. However, the Spanish club have first dabs on the 26-year-old should Madrid and City agree on a financial settlement come the summer transfer window.

Ade said at his first Real Madrid press conference...

'My dream has come true to be able to play again at the highest level, especially with Real Madrid.'

'It's true I had an up-and-down time and I was nearly killed on the way to the African Nations Cup. I was traumatised by all those kinds of things and it was a very difficult moment for me, but now all those things are behind me.'

'2010 started very badly for me, but 2011 has started very well by signing a contract with Real Madrid.'




'I'm very honoured and very, very happy to join this club. After all that has happened over the last six months, today I'm more comfortable, more relieved.'

Pear-shaped

'What went wrong with Mancini and Manchester City? I don't think there's a lot of things wrong.'

'But right now he doesn't have any confidence in me and he has decided to choose other players.'

'I'm happy to be back on the pitch with Real Madrid and have the chance to play football again.'

As a Spurs fan Im really going to miss his goal celebrations when playing Asnul.

Nice one city! I just hope its not to late for him to destabilize Real Madrids CL journey. He is a mole after all, sent out by Wenger to destroy any potential rival club from within :)....I reckon him and Ronaldo will get on like a house on fire....that is if both there ego's CAN fit in the same dressing room....here's hoping ;)

Do get a life gunnerman, you gave him enough abuse when he played for you.

Good luck, Ade, but I think gunnerman76 may be half-right there.

Uskok, are you a Spurs, or Modric, Corluka, Kranjcar fan?

Isn't it easy to spike gooners? Terry Christian once told me that was why his phone in is a success. Adebayor falls into to a category of potential world class players who cannot do it week-in week-out and therefore will never be first class. He will find out very quickly that he is not in the same league as Ronaldo and when Higuain is fit.....back to the bench

Half right about what wanderer72? Maybe when they are going on about how evil a person Ade is they should also mention the disgusting way which they treated him or is it that Arse fans can do no wrong? All the best to Ade i say.
