There were reports making the rounds that Emmanuel Adebayor had criticized, the Confederation of African Football (CAF), along with Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
It was claimed that Adebayor was unhappy with the way Africa’s football governing body is awarding the CAF Player Of The Year award to players who are not playing in the continent and was quoted to have taken a dig at Mane and Salah.
Salah was honoured with the prestigious award in 2017 and 2018 before Mane became the latest player to win the accolade in 2019.
“I would just say that these statements are not mine. I have not granted any media interviews. Always be careful not to post false information.”
Adebayor also captioned his tweet with the quote saying: “Friends watch out for #fakenews!”
