Former Togolese footballer, Emmanuel Adebayor, has expressed his disappointment regarding the lack of recognition for Ghanaian football icon Adebayor and other Ghanaian football legends.
In a conversation with fellow footballer Asamoah Gyan, Adebayor passionately revealed his admiration for Anthony Yeboah during his formative years.
Adebayor emphasized that the former Leeds United striker has not received the level of celebration he deserves in his home country.
He shared his frustration in trying to find an Anthony Yeboah jersey to purchase, as they seem to be unavailable.
Adebayor expressed concern that, in the future, the names of some Ghanaian football legends may be forgotten.
“I grew up knowing the name of Anthony Yeboah and up to today I’m searching for a place where I can get his shirt to buy but I don’t see anything in Ghana” Adebayor said.
“That is sad which means our youngsters in three years or 30 years will not even know who is Asamoah Gyan,” the former Arsenal player said.
Adebayor’s sentiments come following calls to immortalize Ghanaian football legends with a football museum.
