During his short stay at the Olimpia, Emmanuel Adebayor made a mistake on March 11, 2020, which the Paraguayans once again remembered on Friday, March 11, 2022.
“The Togolese Emmanuel Adebayor arrived at Olimpia and caused an unprecedented stir. However, this stage was very short and what is remembered, before the pandemic stopped the world and football in March 2020, was a kick,” said a Paraguayan newspaper.
The match between Olimpia and Defensa y Justicia of Argentina was played on March 11, 2020, the second day of Group G of the Copa Libertadores. Around the 72nd minute, the Togolese striker kicked midfielder Enzo Coacci in the face and received a red card.
At the end, the result of the match remained an anecdote, because the image of the blow ended up going around the world and until now the video is circulating on social networks.
With the break from football, the former Arsenal and Manchester City striker left the club and returned home.
As a reminder, Adebayor filed a complaint against Olimpia claiming the payment of a debt which would be around 550,000 dollars.
