Written by Chris Wheatley

13 Comments  

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has moaned about the tax paid in Britain — and the £8 congestion charge.

The 24-year-old striker, who recently signed an £80,000-a-week deal, was asked what he would change if he was Prime Minister.

Adebayor, who scored 30 goals in 48 games last season, only signed his previous contract in the summer of 2007 but negotiated an improved deal just weeks ago.

“I would try and keep down the tax. In London I would like to change the congestion charge.” revealed Ade

Togo frontman Adebayor joined Arsenal from French side Monaco in January 2006 for £3m.

Poor bugger, must be hell having to get by on 80k a week. Maybe we could start up a collection for him. Footballers…………, the more the game becomes about them, the less and less i find myself enthralled with it. Shame. Anyway, i better go and register the 'relief for Emmanuel charity', too many more weeks of paying that congestions charge, and he might not have enough cash in his back pocket to pay for his jewell encrusted back scratcher he has on order. This guy must have a toe fetish, every time i look around he has his foot… Read more »

Poor Ade, annoying when you earn 80k a week and you have to give nearly half that to the tax man, wish I was that lucky Ade, maybe you should try and live in our shoes rather than look to earn more and complain

As I said before, he was asked on ATVO about six or seven months ago (along with many other Arsenal players, a few of whom said the same thing) and suggested that we lower the tax.

Geez, some people really hate this guy.

This is a very old quote from atvo. Several players,, including hleb, said similar things.
