Emmanuel Adebayor has revealed he contemplated suicide while he struggled to deal with the pressure of making it as a professional footballer.

Adebayor, 35, says he was under so much strain when he was trying to make the grade as a player in France he started to plan to end his own life.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City star admits the expectation of people back home in Togo was getting too much for him to deal with as a 16-year-old playing for Metz.

Speaking to the Mail, Adebayor said: “I was 16. All I wanted to do was help my family out but they put huge pressure on me. I could not cope with it.

“When a family is poor, everyone is poor and there is huge solidarity. People will take a bullet for you. But when one makes it, it is like you owe everyone.

“At Metz I was on maybe £3,000 a month. My family asked for a house worth £500,000. The club were tired of me because of my behaviour.

“I remember sitting on my bed one night and thinking ‘What am I doing here? Nobody’s happy with me, so what is the point of living?’ “There was a pharmacy below my apartment, I bought packet after packet of tablets.

“They did not want to sell it to me but I said it was for a charity in Togo. I made the preparations, I drank all the water. I was ready to go.“Then I called my best friend at midnight. He told me not to rush, that I have things to live for.

“‘You have the potential to change Africa. I thought ‘You are a dream-seller and I am not buying any dreams right now.’

“But he took me out of the moment. I thought God must be keeping for something.”

Adebayor went on to enjoy a successful career at club and international level, also enjoying spells with Monaco, Tottenham, Real Madrid and Crystal Palace.

(Sports) Neymar: Why Barca?

Spanish newspaper Sport have revealed as many as five reasons for why Neymar wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain to return to FC Barcelona this summer.
Reports have stated that the Catalans are keen on signing their former Brazilian superstar this summer, with the reliable Gerard Romero previously claiming that Barca are willing to swap Ousmane Dembele to bring Neymar back to the Nou Camp.
Sport say that one big reason for why Neymar wants to return is that he has realised his mistake. He finished 12th in the Ballon D’or standings and feels that at PSG, he is very far from winning the Champions League. That is poles apart from how things were at Barca- where he came up with brilliant performances every week.
The second reason is that he feels that instead of coming out of Lionel Messi’s shadow to improve, it is better for him to learn from by playing with him to improve. From Messi, he wants to learn how to organize his life away from the pitch and improve on the pitch.
Neymar feels that joining Barcelona will help him regain his lost global value. Over the last two years- especially after the World Cup, Neymar’s global value has fallen. Barcelona can help him regain that spot.
The fourth reasons pertains to the fact that Neymar wants to be happy again. Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s comments have told him that he would rather line up with friends than at a place where he isn’t happy.
The fifth reason is also a crucial one. It states that Neymar knows what happened with Ronaldinho and how his career came apart at the same age at Neymar currently is. The forward is keen to make sure that he doesn’t follow the same path as Ronaldinho and feels that a place like Barcelona will help him do that.

Jose Mourinho Lists 7 Clubs That Can Win Champions League Next Season

Published

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho has reckoned that Liverpool can reach the Champions League final again next season.

Liverpool won the Champions League for a sixth time in their history, with a 2-0 victory over Premier League rivals Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday night.

It was Mohamed Salah’s spot kick and Divock Origi’s last minute strike that gave the Reds their victory.

After watching Real Madrid hand over their crown after three successive titles, Mourinho predicted a third final in a row for Liverpool.

The former Chelsea boss who won the competition with Porto and Inter Milan, said on beIN Sports, “With Real Madrid it’s three in a row. Why can’t Liverpool do three finals in a row?

“Why Liverpool, with this good team, with this good spirit, with this good empathy. The club, the manager, the players, the fans. Why not a third?”

Mourinho also named seven other clubs that are capable of claiming the title.

“I was writing here the teams that want to win the Champions League. Juventus, Bayern, PSG, Manchester United, City, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid,” Mourinho added.

“You have seven or eight teams.

“Lots of teams want to do it, but only one can do it.”

However, Mourinho thinks Chelsea’s transfer ban will harm their chances of doing well in the Champions League.

“It is difficult for Chelsea because they don’t have the possibility to be in the transfer market,” Mourinho said of the Europa League champions.

Liverpool To Battle Chelsea In Super Cup On This Date

Published

Liverpool will play Chelsea in the first all-English Uefa Super Cup on 14 August in Istanbul.

The Reds qualified by beating Tottenham 2-0 in the Champions League final, with the Blues booking their place with a 4-1 win over Arsenal in the Europa League on Wednesday.

Liverpool are the last English side to win the Super Cup, back in 2005.

Four of the past five have been all-Spanish affairs – with Atletico beating Real Madrid in Tallinn in 2018.

However there is no World Club Cup for Liverpool to play in this year, after Fifa made it a four-yearly event, with the next one in 2021. It had been played annually from 2005 until last year.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will be in six competitions next season. They also play in the Community Shield – against Manchester City – at Wembley. A date has yet to be confirmed, but it is likely to be on 3 or 4 August.

Mohamed Salah put last season’s final heartbreak behind him by setting up a 2-0 win over Tottenham in Madrid and a sixth Champions League triumph for Liverpool.

Egypt star Salah was infamously injured in a challenge with Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos before the Reds subsided to a 3-1 defeat in Kiev 12 months ago but grabbed the opener in a largely forgettable contest at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The Premier League Golden Boot winner dispatched a second-minute penalty after Moussa Sissoko was penalised for handball.

Mourinho Claims He Knew Manchester United Would Sack Him

Jose Mourinho has played down the impact of his sack from Manchester United, saying it was “nothing I didn’t expect” and that he “didn’t need time to recover”.

The Portuguese coach was dismissed by United in December, after falling 19 points behind then-league leaders, Liverpool.

During his three-year stay at Old Trafford, Mourinho spent nearly £400million on 11 players and failed to compete for the Premier League title.

Now, Mourinho has dismissed any notion of the sacking having any lasting impact on him, insisting that he didn’t need time to recover from the job loss.

“I didn’t need to recover from anything. What happened was nothing I didn’t expect.

“I didn’t need time to recover. I’ve been using the time to work on my future, to improve my technical staff, to find a new dimension to my work, without obviously losing what I am.

“It was me who, being as I am and thinking as I think, got to where I am. But my work has been at that level. I want to be better, I want to readapt, I want to reformulate myself and that’s what I’ve been doing,” Mourinho told Eleven Sports.
