Emmanuel Adebayor has brought an end to his stay at Turkish Super Lig club Kayserispor.
The Togo legend leaves the club a mere three months after joining on a free transfer from league rivals Istanbul Basaksehir.
Adebayor, who captained the team on two occasions, scored two goals in eight games, including the club’s only as they slumped to a 4-1 loss away to Besiktas earlier this week. Kayserispor are rooted to the bottom of the log standings.
“Everything was quite difficult for me and this is one of the most important decisions to make in my career,” Adebayor told reporters as per BBC Sport.
“I joined this team with a lot of ambition, to make history but at some point you have to look at your health, family, everything around you and make a decision.
“I’ve come to a conclusion where I have to move forward. Obviously, I have to leave this team but my thoughts will always be with the club.”
There now hangs a cloud of uncertainty over the 35-year-old’s future as a professional footballer, but the former Arsenal, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur forward doesn’t seem content on hanging up his boots just yet.
He continued: “A footballer can never close a page, let me just go now and clear my head about my life and career. We’ll see if I come back to Turkey or not.
“I had a beautiful three years in Turkey and I just wish this league to be one of the best leagues in Europe.
“Going back home to see my family, childhood friends, and a change of atmosphere for a couple of weeks and I will take it from there.
“A lot is going on and I just need to go back home to know the next thing that I will do,” Adebayor concluded.
