It’s happened people. The madness continues…Â Emmanuel Adebayor is officially a Manchester City player now, the club having confirmed on its official website that he has signed a five-year contract, for an undisclosed fee.
This from the City website:
“A crowd of around 300 Blues fans were at the City of Manchester Stadium to greet the striker whose was named African Player of the Year for 2008.
The player was hugely impressed by his reception.
It made me feel really welcome and special and I can’t wait to play for City’s fans and show them what I can do,” he declared after completing the bulk of the paperwork.
I was born to play football and that is what I want to do. I have come here to make history for this club and those supporters. It what the chairman and the manager told me that they want too and I can’t wait to get started.”
Three-hundred fans!! Wow, that kind of puts C-Ron’s 80,000 into perspective (only joking).
