Adebayor insists quit threats are 'rubbish'

May 14, 2008

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has reiterated his 'love' for the club and insists he will not be following Mathieu Flamini out of Emirates Stadium.

Recent reports have claimed the 30-goal Togo international would seek a transfer unless he received a substantial pay rise this summer, while he was quoted in French paper L'Equipe earlier today claiming rumoured interest from Barcelona and AC Milan was 'very flattering'.

Only last Friday, Adebayor attempted to put an end to talk of a move away from north London when he said: 'I am very happy here. Reports which suggest I have threatened to quit are rubbish.'

This evening he has once again set out his position, and the former Monaco forward insists there is no chance he will quit Arsene Wenger's promising side.

'I don't know why people want to put words in my mouth,' he told the club's website.

'As I said on Friday, I love Arsenal and I will be here next season.

'I am off to Togo tomorrow but will return to Arsenal for pre-season training in July.'
