Emmanuel Adebayor Sheyi has been dealing with a lot of personal baggage for a while now. It is a serious family issue that has led to his revealing he’s felt suicidal once and his brother actually attempting to commit suicide.
And it has greatly affected his professional career as well. His current club, Tottenham Hotspur, have been trying to offload him for a while now. His performances have dipped, leading to the club freezing him out. However, his £100,000 a week wages meant he had to find a new club as you cannot have someone earning that kind of money and just sitting on their bum doing nothing.
