Togolese football icon, Sheyi Emmanuel Adebayor, says he would never rule out the possibility of playing for Ghanaian giants, Kumasi Asante Kotoko.
The 36-year-old former Real Madrid forward, who is a brand ambassador of electronics giant, Hisense, a partner of Asante Kotoko, was in attendance yesterday at the unveiling of the partnership at East Legon.
The former Arsenal and Tottenham star says he’d not rule out joining the Porcupine Warriors, either as a player or a board member.
He also stated Kotoko CEO, Nana Yaw Amponsah, who is a friend, could be a reason he’d join the record Ghana Premier League winners.
When I was young, I never thought I will play for Real Madrid in my whole life. I never thought I would even be once on the TV in my life, but at the end of the day, I have been there,” Adebayor said.
”Playing for Kotoko is a team and I already have one friend there now. I have family, I know the CEO so I will never say never.
”I may decide to retire in Ghana or I may decide to be part of the board.”
Adebayor is available on a free transfer after terminating his contract with Paraguayan side, Olimpia, in July 2020, on mutual ground because of the complications of the coronavirus pandemic.
