Adebayor reveals worst decision of his career

But none of those moments mark the worst decision of Emmanuel Adebayor's decade-long career in England - according to the man himself.

The 33-yerar-old, who now plays for Turkish side Başakşehir, joined the Eagles as a free agent in January 2016.

Emmanuel Adebayor scored six goals in 11 league games as his new side finished second and reached the domestic cup final.

Adebayor explained that he signed with the Eagles after the instruction of his agent who felt he needed to be playing again after being let go at White Hart Lane a few months previously.

"I am not sure (what will happen), we'll have to wait and see what happens, see what is in front of me and make the decision from there".

He told L'Equipe: "I had some great experiences in England in clubs who are among the best in the country". It was the worst decision of my career'. The only mistake I made was to sign at Crystal Palace in January 2016.

Adebayor found himself without a club at the time having been released from his contract at Tottenham.

'There's been Championship and Premier League clubs in touch, a lot of interest but I want to have a good summer with the family and go from there'.

'I did it just to please my entourage, who were saying to me: "Manu, you have to start playing again!" He was originally at Arsenal before controversially leaving there for Manchester City.

The 30-year-old was phased out of proceedings at the tail end of last season when Sam Allardyce took charge at Selhurst Park and is now available as a free agent.
