Olimpia to pay Emmanuel Adebayor half a million dollars for cancelling his contract

BoomRadioNG | June 16, 2022

Togolese football player, EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR has been awarded almost half a million pounds as compensation for his club sacking him. FIFA today ruled that the striker’s club had sacked him unfairly.

Former Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham star Adebayor joined Paraguayan side Olimpia in early 2020.

He made just four appearances for the club before Covid-19 halted their season.

Adebayor then failed to return from his home country, Togo due to travel restrictions caused by covid-19.

Olimpia then cancelled his one-year contract in June 2020, and the 38-year-old has not played since then.

FIFA’s football tribunal has now ordered Olimpia to pay Adebayor 510,000 dollars (£420,000), plus 12 per cent interest backdated to 2020.

Adebayor played for arsenal where he scored 62 goals in 142 games following his 2006 arrival from Monaco.

He joined Manchester City in 2009, and had a loan spell with Real Madrid before a four-season stay with Spurs. The 85-cap international went on to play for Crystal Palace, and 2 Turkish clubs, before his ill-fated move to South America two years ago.
