Emmanuel Adebayor returned once again to Real Madrid in 2011. The Togolese international said in an interview with So Foot that the Real Madrid technician of the time, José Mourinho, wanted him to stay term of his loan.
During the winter transfer window of 2011, Emmanuel Adebayor landed at Real Madrid from Manchester City in loan form. In half a season, the former Monaco striker scored 8 goals in 22 appearances among the Madrilenians. Remarkable statistics that pleased his coach José Mourinho who wanted to keep him at the end of his loan but finally Adebayor took the direction of Tottenham. In the columns of So Foot, the native of Lomé explained his summer 2011.
« Mourinho wanted to keep me at all costs, but it did not happen. « I can even show you all the messages, » he told me. On the other side, I had Harry Redknapp who wanted me in Tottenham. He had already polled me in a C1 match against Real. José advised me to go there. It went really well for two seasons. Redknapp, he is special, different. He came to see you and said, « How are you? I feel tired, take two days off. Go to Paris and see you on Wednesday. Behind, he asked a secretary to take me a ticket. I came back on Wednesday: « How are you? Do you want to train? Go get a massage and do twenty minutes of cycling. I usually train on Thursdays, and on Fridays, he says, « I really need you tomorrow. You’re going to eat the defenders, you’re stronger than everyone else, the best striker in this championship, better than Rooney. At first you know he’s playing, but he manages to get into your head. On Saturday, I put two goals and it makes me: « Good, Manu, we see you Thursday! Redknapp works the old fashioned way. It’s give-and-take. Players need these days off to disconnect. So you give yourself 200% to get them. And then this team of Spurs: Basel, Modric, Van der Vaart, Lennon … It was going to ten thousand per hour. When Redknapp was fired, it was more complicated, « says the Togolese.

Here is the reason why Aubameyang was excluded from Dortmund!
Unsuccessful this season, Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang knows a difficult start to the championship with Borussia Dortmund. Author of 14 goals in his first twelve games, the Gabon remains on a series of five games without any achievement. Worse still, the BVB, which led without conceding a goal for a long time, now ranks third behind RB Leipzig, and 6 points behind Bayern.
But the Ruhr club has not finished suffering, since you were told yesterday that the Gabonese striker was excluded from the professional group of Borussia Dortmund. But we just learned the exact reason why the former scorer of Saint-Etienne was fired.
And the reason would be that the player would arrive far too often behind the training, on top of that, the player would not have an adequate professional behavior with the life of a professional footballer. Moreover, according to the German media, Aubameyang would feel above the laws of the club, and think that from his status of executive in the team, he can do everything.
This is a serious accusation, and if that is true, it would mean that the behavior of the Gabon striker could have serious consequences for his future at the club. We already know that the player wanted to leave this summer. However, despite a strong interest of this great European club, the player had to stay in Borussia unlike Ousmane Dembele who went to Barca on a strike.
When we know the seriousness of the German leaders on these issues, it would not be surprising to see Aubameyang wax the bench for the upcoming games, even if the player is a part of the team, and he is the top scorer of the last Bundesliga season. But Borussia still has something to do with André Schurrle, but especially the Swedish nugget of 18 years, Alexander Isak recruited last season.
