Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has said he will soon be revealing more about his family after a series of startling accusations he earlier made against them in the week.
According to the Daily Mail, the Togo international said he could not “take it any more” and insisted that the explosive claims he had previously made were true.
It follows accusations about several members of his family, including his mother, sister and brothers, in which he accused them of a variety of misdemeanors.
“What I have written is the truth,” he told the Sun. “I don’t tell lies. Keep reading my Facebook page because I will be writing more. It has been going on for too long. I can’t take it any more.”
He added on Facebook and Instagram, “When the time is right Rotimi Adebayor’s story will come out in Part 2.”
In Tuesday’s 877-word Facebook post, Adebayor claims one brother, Rotimi, stole 21 mobile phones from a French football academy he had got him a place in.
The Premier League ace says he was not allowed to see his now-deceased sibling Peter when he was “seriously ill” and was instead told by his mother to “just give money”.
He also says he paid for another brother, Kola, to fly to Africa from Germany to attend Peter’s funeral but he did not show up.
The 31-year-old Premier League striker, who played down reports suggesting he kicked his mother out of his house back in November, also listed the items he has bought his family during his time as a professional footballer.
Adebayor insists he has decided to alert the public to his argument with his family in order to ensure “other African families learn from this”.
The former Arsenal player, who returned to first team action against Manchester City on Sunday after spending just under two months on the sidelines, revealed incredibly personal matters in his statement.
