Arsenal news: Wenger recalls what led to Adebayor exit and that Man City celebration | Football | Sport
Adebayor was fined £25,000 for his reaction, but said it was a message to Wenger and Arsenal that they had made a mistake in letting him go.
“What was going through my head? A prisoner is out. A prisoner is free.
“I played for the club for three-and-a-half years, you bought me for £3m, I still have five years of my contract and you let me go for £20m more and you are telling me I am the one leaving for money and abusing me.
“I am not taking that so it was just to show them that the person you are insulting still has something in his locker.”
