Eboue backs Adebayor ban
18 Sep 2009 - 09:14:44
Emmanuel Eboue has backed the FA's decision to hand his former Arsenal team-mate Emmanuel Adebayor an initial three-match ban for his actions during Saturday's controversial clash at Manchester City.
The FA banned Adebayor after he admitted to stamping on Gunners star Robin van Persie but could face another suspension for running the length of the pitch to celebrate his goal in City's 4-2 win in front of the Arsenal fans.
Eboue said: "He didn't do well because you have a lot of young people who watch the game and they see that and it's no good for football.
"But I am very, very happy because the FA have given him a three-game ban (for the stamp on van Persie).
"I know him and I think he will think about that and he will take it on board and now will try to play his game. What he did was no good for football. I am very disappointed about it, very disappointed.
"When he was in our team we did everything together and so we don't know what happened.
"Kolo (Toure) came into our dressing room and he said sorry to everyone and that was very, very nice.
"If Adebayor calls me I will speak with him. But he didn't call me yet. I'll wait. If he calls me I will say 'Thank you God'. If he doesn't call me, that's his problem."
