City Striker Emmanuel Adebayor says he feared for his life following the horrific gun attack on the Togo team bus during last month’s the African Cup of Nations which left three people dead.
Ade scored the first goal in Sunday’s win over Portsmouth, which was his first Premier League game since the attack in Angola. “It’s good to be home and back on the football pitch,” says the former Arsenal striker. “At one point I didn’t think I would ever see City’s stadium and the fans again.”
Ade also paid tribute to the club and supporters in particular. “Through all the difficulties, the fans were there with me, calling my name and sending me messages of support. I was very moved by the way they did that. The club too did everything they could for me.”
