Adebayor update

Posted on 13 July 2014  - 22:00

Emmanuel Adebayor is recovering in hospital after contracting a mild bout of malaria.


The Togo international was admitted to hospital on Saturday after reporting feeling unwell to our medical staff. A swift diagnosis meant the disease was detected at an early stage and he is responding well to treatment. The striker is expected to be released from hospital tomorrow and will then require a minimum of seven days before returning to training.

The player has been advised not to travel on medical grounds, which means he will be forced to miss our pre-season tour of North America.
