'It Was The Worst Decision Of My Career'- Adebayor Talks About Joining English Side

Togolese and Istanbul Basaksehir's forward Emmanuel Adebayor has recently revealed that joining Premier League side Crystal Palace was the worst thing he had ever done in his footballing career.

The 33-year-old striker joined the Eagles in the winter transfer window of January 2016 and scored only one goal in his 15 appearances for the Club leaving the club at the end of the season.

‘I had some great experiences in England in clubs who are among the best in the country,’ he told L’Equipe.

‘I was happy there, my family too. The only error that I made was to sign for Crystal Palace in January 2016.

‘I did it just to please my entourage, who were saying to me: ‘Manu, you have to start playing again!’ It was the worst decision of my career.’

After leaving Palace last summer he was a free agent until January this year when he signed for Turkish Super Lig club İstanbul Başakşehir.

Adebayor scored six goals in 11 league games as his new side finished second and reached the domestic cup final.

‘I spent this time out of the game calmly,’ he added.

‘I was never worried. Because I was never left with nothing to do. I spent several months in Togo to train.

‘I have a sports room in my house in Lome, and what is practical in Togo is that you can train outside all year. I worked on speed, endurance, My sister looked after me, she made me healthy meals.’
