I really didn’t understand it at all. I was running on pure emotion and when you take emotion out of football we are going to have a big problem.‘People say I had time to think about because I ran the length of the pitch but that is not true. I was abused all match and scored a goal I knew would win the game for us. Ten seconds is nothing – your emotion is going to last a lot longer than that.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityAdebayor always felt the abuse from Arsenal fans was unjustified, explaining that it was Gunners boss Arsene Wenger who wanted to sell him rather than him pushing for a move.‘There is only so much abuse a man can take until he reaches breaking point. I could not understand some of the Arsenal players being disrespectful towards me.‘I was being abused by people who six months ago were singing my name. The abuse was for no reason. It wasn’t my fault I left, it was Arsene who wanted to accept the offer for me. They were all clapping Kolo but they were shouting personal abuse at me before the match had even kicked off.‘People talk about us as being football players and the money we earn, but just because we are fortunate it does not mean we need to take abuse. If you were to abuse a man in the street for over an hour he would react and it would be a worse reaction than a goal celebration.’Adebayor signed for Turkish side Kayserispor this summer on a one-year contract.MORE: Kieran Tierney nutmegs Shkodran Mustafi on return to full training for ArsenalMORE: Dani Ceballos reveals Unai Emery wants him to take charge in midfield for Arsenal Full Screen About Connatix V67539 Read More Read More Read Morecenter_img Advertisement Read More 1/1 Skip Ad by Metro Visit Advertiser website GO TO PAGE Read More Advertisement Metro Sport ReporterFriday 13 Sep 2019 7:58 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link325Shares Video Settings Emmanuel Adebayor is still winding up Arsenal fans (Picture: Getty Images)Emmanuel Adebayor has no intention of trying to win over Arsenal fans, as he is still winding them up 10 years on from his infamous goal celebration for Manchester City against the Gunners.Adebayor left Arsenal for City in July 2009 after four seasons with the north London side, having scored 62 goals for the club.Gunners fans were not happy with the striker joining a Premier League rival and let him know that with a fierce reception when Arsenal traveled to the Etihad in September ’09.The Togo international scored City’s third in a 4-2 victory and ran the length of the field to celebrate in front of the Arsenal supporters.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT SPONSORED / last_img
