After Mesut Ožil another former Los Blacos player announces retirement. Real Madrid has added some surprise players over the years. One of them was undoubtedly the loan agreement they had with Emmanuel Adebayor in January 2011 that lasted through the end of that campaign. It was a decision that was made while Jose Mourinho was the club’s manager and that few people would have anticipated.
The former Tottenham star’s entrance may not have been glamorous, especially in light of his difficulties at Manchester City. But it did show that signing the loan was effective. Transfermarkt statistics show that he played 1117 minutes of total football while making 22 appearances for the club and scoring 8 goals.
In Real Madrid, Adebayor would triumph in the Cup del Rey. It turned out to be his career’s lone big trophy, which is interesting.
That happened more than ten years ago. The Togo international is now officially waving goodbye to the contest. Adebayor has confirmed his retirement from football, according to The Athletic.

The Real Madrid Streets did forget.
It is simple to overlook how talented Adebayor was during his heyday. For Arsenal, he enjoyed a 30-goal season. Also, in 2008, he received the African Player of the Year award.
He will be remembered for all of his playing prowess, but also for his controversial moments. Of course, his extravagant celebrations after scoring for Manchester City against his previous team, Arsenal, were the largest. When he eventually joined their enduring rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, he did not win over the admiration of the followers of his former team either.
It comes as a bit of a surprise that the athlete, who donned the jerseys of teams like Real Madrid, Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, AS Monaco, Crystal Palace, and more, spent his final season playing for AC Semassi in Togo.
