Emmanuel Adebayor and Togo allegedly robbed in Sun City ahead of Africa Cup of Nations match against Ivory Coast

Posted: 22 January 2013 Time: 15:56

After showing reluctance to travel to South Africa because of “safety concerns”, Emmanuel Adebayor has allegedly been the victim of a robbery at his Sun City Hotel – along with his Togo teammates.

Don't miss: Adebayor fears for his safety in SA

MTNFootball reports that The Hawks were robbed shortly after their arrival in South Africa for the Africa Nations Cup.

The details of the case are unknown at this point, although some cash and personal belongings are said to have been taken.

"Police are conducting an investigation, therefore we are waiting for the latter to be completed before releasing any comments," an official told MTNFootball.

Togo are up against Ivory Coast this evening in their Group D opener at Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg.

Puh...Lease. Dude was saying he does not feel for his safety before and now this? These Togo people are just pathetic. There is no merit to this story. This is just another attempt by the whinny boys to justify the beating from IC. Adebayor, just shut up and play. you suck anyways.

Jali and Mabena are behind this. They are the only thieves who can have access to these players.I bet jewellery is among the stuff stolen and all the jewelery thieves are Jali and company

None other than Bobby Motaung, he thought this was the chance to still his dockets.

Sorry Bobby you stole from wrong Hawks, these ones are soccer players not the police.
