Ade pledges Gunners future
26 May 2009 - 15:23:04
Striker Emmanuel Adebayor has ended talk of him leaving Arsenal this summer, following recent rumours linking him with both Chelsea and AC Milan.
The 25-year-old Togo international has been unhappy at being booed by some sections of the Gunners faithful, sparking talk that he would opt to leave the Emirates Stadium.
However, Adebayor told the club's official magazine: "All I can say is I am a footballer and if a club like Milan are interested in me then I cannot lie to you, I am happy, because it is Milan.
"But the thing is that it stops there - I am very happy playing for Arsenal and this is what I always say.
"At the end of the day you just get bored of this - people read these things and then the fans will boo you for what you never said, but again I repeat that I am very happy here.
"I have got nothing to say to anybody. People are always there to judge, but they are not on the pitch, they are writing what they want to.
"I cannot explain myself to those people. They think what they are saying is right. I cannot do a better job than a journalist, I cannot do a better job than politicians, what I can do is play my football.
"This season I have given 100 per cent of what I have and I'm looking forward to coming back next season and trying to achieve things.
"When you score 30 goals in a season you can expect that the following year there will be a little bit more pressure and attention on you.
"If you want to be a big player you have to manage this and find a solution, that is what I have been trying to do this time."
Adebayor has scored 62 goals in 142 appearances for the Gunners since his arrival from Monaco in January 2006.
