‘Never say never’, Emmanuel Adebayor hints at readiness to join Asante Kotoko


The lanky striker failed to hide his love for the Porcupine Warriors and claims it is possible to join them before he retires from active football

Former Real Madrid striker Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor has admitted that it is possible to join Ghana Premier League giants Asante Kotoko before finally hanging his boots.

The 36-year-old, who recently terminated his contract with Paraguayan side FC Olimpia in July this year due to Coronavirus disease, was a special guest of honour during the unveiling of partnership between Kotoko and Hisense in Accra on Saturday.

“In life, when I was young I never thought I will play for Real Madrid in my whole entire life. I never thought I would even be once on the TV in my life but at the end of the day, I have been there,” Adebayor said when asked if he would consider joining Kotoko one day.

“Kotoko is a big team and playing for them won’t be bad. I already have one friend there now. I have family, I know the CEO so I will never say never.

“I may decide to retire in Ghana or I may decide to be part of the board one day,” the former Arsenal and Manchester City star added.

Kotoko will open their Ghana Premier League account this season with a home fixture against Techiman Eleven Wonders at the Accra Sports Stadium.
