At 33, Emmanuel Adebayor continues his career in Turkey, Basaksehir, after having played among the major clubs in Europe: Real Madrid, Manchester City or Arsenal. The Togolese international, who began his professional career in France at FC Metz, returns in the last magazine So Foot on his passage in Ligue 2, which allowed him to achieve the career we know today:
« In Ligue 1, I have the chance to play ten games with guys like Baticle, Meyrieu, Gaillot. All the clubs wanted me: Juve, Milan, Chelsea, Manchester, Arsenal, but I followed the advice of De Taddeo, to whom I owe 99% of my career. « There’s still a season in D2 to show everyone that your D1 games are not random. Become a titular and you will then go to a club that will play titles. In D2 it worked well!
Indeed, during the 2002-2003 season, Emmanuel Adebayor played 34 Ligue 2 games, 31 of them as titular. He scored 13 goals and allowed the Lorraine club to go back immediately in the elite of French football. Before leaving for AS Monaco to prove even more at the top level and try the experience abroad at Arsenal in 2006.
