Emmanuel Adebayor reveals that he “regrets” his contentious goal celebration against Arsenal for Manchester City back in 2009.
The Togo international ran the length of the pitch to celebrate in front of Arsenal fans after scoring against them for Man City in 2009.
And Adebayor has now said he was wrong for celebrating in that manner.
“I regret that,” Adebayor told the Irish Examiner. “People have to know as well we are human beings.
“When you give someone a stick, even if you keep abusing your son or daughter at home, you have to expect a reaction one day from him or her.
“That is what I have done, but for me it is behind. Obviously if I score against Arsenal I will not run full pitch and will not slide on my knees again.”
However, there`s no doubt the spurs fans would have been delighted if he did that again in the north-London derby on Saturday.
