Emmanuel Adebayor has refused to rule out the possibility of him winning the Ballon d’Or.


Adebayor who played for some of the biggest clubs and under some of the biggest football managers haven’t been lucky enough to win a league title.

The Togo striker had stints at Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Real Madrid but now plays in the Turkish league with Istanbul Basaksehir, leading the club’s goal-scoring chart.

“I had dreamt of playing for Arsenal and Real Madrid and those dreams came true,” Adebayor said.

“Maybe I can dream of winning the Ballon d’Or and that can come true as well.

“I’m not really happy with my football career but I can’t complain about it either. I’m still alive, so I can keep dreaming.”

Reflecting also on the coaches he had worked with, Adebayor said “The worst coach I have ever had was Roberto Mancini, I never liked his training methods.

“The best coach I have ever worked with is certainly Jose Mourinho. He has an unparalleled passion.”
