Arsene Wenger Says, ‘Adebayor’s Heart is with Arsenal’

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has been booed by Arsenal fans during their 1-0 victory over West Brom in the opening match of the English premier league 2008-2009 season. However, Arsenal manager Arsene manager thinks that Adebayor made a sacrifice to decide to stay at Arsenal, despite having a number of offers from Europe’s big clubs like AC Milan and Barcelona. Even Adebayor himself was reportedly interested to leave the club.

The Togolese striker has recently signed a new four-year deal offering £80,000 a week. Wenger thinks that Adebayor was unfairly treated in the opening match because his heart is still with the club. Wenger has also added that Adebayor always preferred to stay at Arsenal, despite having a number of offers from other big clubs. Adebayor was the highest scorer for Arsenal last season with 30 goals to his credit.

I personally think that Arsenal fans should support Adebayor because he is 24 and has spent a very successful season with a big club like Arsenal. From professional point of view, it was very natural that Europe’s big clubs would track him for the next season, but still he did not leave the club being assured of an improved contract. I think, he deserved the new contract he signed recently for four years. I think, we should understand that he is currently the leading striker at Arsenal at this moment.
