Adebayor takes legal action over Togo 'rift' allegations

Manchester City star Emmanuel Adebayor has issued a writ against a Togolese journalist for alleged defamation.

The striker's lawyers have taken action against Prosper Komi Agboklou, otherwise known as 'Prosper the German', because of an allegation made on a private television channel.
The journalist is accused of claiming that Adebayor, who retired from international football in April, was the cause of a rift between the players and management prior to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nation qualifier in Chad on July 1.
The Togo players had refused to travel on the date officially set aside by their football federation because, according to Agboklou, they decided to stay in Lome to go to a party organised by Adebayor in one of the capital's nightclubs.
The match went ahead on schedule and ended in a 2-2 draw.
The Association of Sports Journalists in Togo (AJST) has issued a statement supporting Agboklu and "deploring" the writ.
