Arsene Wenger: Berbatov’s Transfer Saga Not Similar to Adebayor’s

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not think that Togolese striker Emmanuel Adebayor created a similar situation that Tottenham Hotspur’s Bulgarian international Dimitar Berbatov has created recently, calling for a move to Manchester United. However, Tottenham does not want to let the striker move to Old Trafford until they receive at least £28million as transfer fee. In response, Berbatov refused to play for Tottenham and stirred much anger among the team maters as well as Coach Juande Ramos.

Arsenal’s Togo international Emmanuel Adebayor seemed to leave the club at one point during the pre-season, and was linked with AC Milan and Barcelona, claiming an increase in his pay role. All the rumors and speculations around Adebayor’s future at Arsenal were put off when the player put pen on paper to come under a new contract with Arsenal.

However, Wenger is reluctant to compare the situation that Adebayor created with that of Berbatov. The French manager has said that Adebayor was committed to the club and Arsenal was his first choice, while Berbatov seems to want a move at this moment. That is what Wenger pointed out to differentiate between the two situations.
