Compassionate leave: Emmanuel Adebayor has been given time off by Spurs. Emmanuel Adebayor has been given compassionate leave by Tottenham after revealing he contemplated suicide.
He has already been ruled out of Sunday’s final game of the season against Everton and he will not go on their post-season tour of Malaysia and Sydney.
It means he has almost certainly played his last game for the club. The troubled Togolese striker, 31, has held urgent talks with his club after the latest round of his explosive public war of words with his family.
Mirror Sport today published his disturbing allegations that he had to be talked out of killing himself by his sister Iyabo.
