adebayor-fine Adebayor has been charged with violent conduct and improper conduct by the FA for his behaviour in Manchester City’s win over Arsenal on Saturday.Its affected the arsenal fans so much they have even set fire to his old top see video below

The City striker faces a three-match ban for an alleged stamp on Robin van Persie, and further sanction for racing down the pitch to celebrate his goal in front of the Arsenal fans.

 

Van Persie subsequently claimed Adebayor had deliberately set out to injure him.

In a statement on Arsenal’s official website, Van Persie said he was “sad and disappointed” by Adebayor’s “mindless and malicious stamp”.

The 26-year-old added: “He set out to hurt me. I do feel lucky that I have not received a greater injury. I knew he was aiming for a collision because he changed the angle of his body to allow contact to be made.

“The contact was only centimetres from my eye. I have not received an apology from him, there were no words exchanged afterwards. He had his own agenda today and that is bad for football. It’s bad for the game we all love.

City boss Mark Hughes told the club’s official website: “Emmanuel sustained a tremendous amount of personal abuse from the kick-off but strongly maintains that there was no malice intended in the challenge on Van Persie and apologised to him when he hugged him on leaving the field of play at the end of the game.”

Adebayor has until 6pm on Wednesday to respond to the FA

Feel the love!
