Togo President persuades Adebayor to join team

Emmanuel Adebayor will play in the African Nations Cup after being persuaded to go back on his decision to boycott the tournament by Togo’s President Faure Gnassingbe in meetings over the last two days, a government spokesman said yesterday.

The Tottenham striker had previously said he was boycotting the tournament in South Africa, which starts on Jan. 19, because of a row over bonuses for the players.

Adebayor, who has now made three returns after self-imposed ‘retirements’ from the national side, has missed Togo’s pre-tournament preparations, including international warm-up games in Oman and Niger over the last 10 days.
