Hangeland: Adebayor was very lazy, Always Drank Coffee and ate Muffins in the gym.
Norwegian and former Crystal Palace defender who happened to be Adebayor’s team mate for over 6months has lifted the lid on one of the most controversial players to have graced the Premier League.
Speaking to radio station Heia football, Brede Hangeland said
“When we had strength workouts he would sit in the gym with just a cup of coffee and a muffin,”
“He was being paid by [Manchester] City, Tottenham and Palace at the same time, and he was sitting in the gym drinking coffee. Incredible natural talent, but very lazy.”
“I only played with him for six months but here’s a quick story. I was playing for Fulham and he played for Spurs,”
“We were attacking and I was marking Adebayor in the midfield. He suddenly he said, ‘Ahhh, I’m hungry.’ I replied, ‘What?’
“I can’t wait for the game to finish, I’m so hungry,’ he said. Do you know a good restaurant in London, Hangeland?”
