Former Super Eagles defender Godwin Okpara has called on Emmanuel Adebayor to return his 2008 African Player of the Year award.
Adebayor claimed that the award should be given to players who only played in Africa, firing that Sadio Mane should not have won the award.
The Togolese had won the award in 2008 while playing for Arsenal ahead of Mohammed Abou Trika, who was based in Africa and had won the CAF Champions League and AFCON.
Okpara while speaking to brila.net, said the former City and Madrid man should return the honours since he has developed a conscience.
“Adebayor is an interesting character, you know how he behaves. He didn’t even leave England well”, the former Right back concluded.
Okpara played at the 1998 World Cup, 2000 AFCON and the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
