The likes of Samuel Eto'o, Didier Drogba and Zinedine Zidane have all donated cash to help fight COVID-19 but ex-Premier League striker Emmanuel Adebayor says he won’t be contributing to help battle coronavirus in Togo.
Many players have helped to raise funds – or donated money themselves – as the global pandemic rages on.
Samuel Eto'o has is ensuring relief packages reach his homeland, Cameroon.
Premier League legend Didier Drogba is also helping build a hospital.
Adebayor, however, isn’t ready to do the same.
“I always do things according to the wishes of my heart and not according to the words of others,” Adebayor said in a Facebook live video .
“I'm sorry that people compare me to Samuel Eto'o and Didier Drogba by asking me why I don't have a foundation or why I don't donate, as if I was the one who brought the coronavirus to Togo…
“I am neither the one nor the other, I am me, Sheyi Emmanuel Adebayor.
“A word of advice for the guys regarding donations, I will not do that. Everything is clear and very simple. Thank you and good day.”
