Former Real Madrid and Manchester City forward Emmanuel Adebayor has joined Olimpia, the reigning Paraguayan champions announced on Tuesday.
The Togo forward, who also played for Arsenal, Tottenham and Crystal Palace during a decade-long stay in the English Premier League, had been a free agent since December when he left Turks Kayserispor.
Adebayor, 35, will join up with former City team-mate Roque Santa Cruz at Olimpia, where his fellow veteran was top scorer in the Paraguayan league last year.
“Hello to the Olimpia fans. Thanks for everything, see you on Friday,” said Adebayor in a message recorded by the club.
“Adebayor hasn’t come here on holiday,” said Olimpia president Marcos Trovato at the event announcing his signature and that of other new recruits, including 25-year-old Paraguay forward Derlis Gonzalez from Dynamo Kiev. (Text courtesy of The Punch)
