Adebayor ‘sorry’ for Arsenal goal celebration

By Online Editorial

Emmanuel Adebayor has said he is ‘sorry’ for his goal celebration during Manchester City’s 4-2 win over Arsenal at the City of Manchester Stadium.

The Togo striker nodded home the goal that effectively sealed the three points for City, and set off at full pace to the other end of the pitch to celebrate in front of Arsenal’s travelling supporters.

The 25-year-old told Sky Sports after the match that his focus was purely to score and that he will learn from his ‘mistake’.

“The emotions took over me, the frustration is out of me,” said the striker. “I’m very sorry for what I have done, but as a player you just focus on scoring.”

“We are all human beings, we have to make a mistake to be better tomorrow.”

He went on to emphasise the importance of today’s result.

“I’m very delighted. We all knew how important this game was for myself and for Kolo [Toure].

“We showed good character today, it was a tough game but what we fight for is to take the three points

“At the end of the day it is the three points which is important and we took that.”
