Sporting Director Damien Comolli commented: Ã¢â‚¬Å“I find these reports amazing, but I guess I should not be surprised at how much inaccurate information there is out there. This story is absolute rubbish and we do resent it when we see claims that we have been snubbed by a player in this way when we werenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even interested. Indeed, there would be absolutely no sense in us bringing in any striker who is involved in the African Nations Cup and therefore about to miss games here.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have always said this would be a quiet window for us. The best players are not available in January. Martin and I are quite clear that we will always keep looking, but that we will only bring in quality players that will improve our squad.Ã¢â‚¬Â
It is worth pointing out that reports suggesting that we had any interest in Togo international Emmanuel Adebayor are totally inaccurate. In addition there was no meeting between the player and officials at this club as is claimed.
