AmaZulu, a South African football club, is reportedly planning to file a complaint with FIFA regarding Niger’s all-time top scorer, Victorien Adebayor, as per African football expert Micky’s reports.
Adebayor was acquired by the Premier Soccer League club from the Moroccan top-flight side, RS Berkane, during the recent transfer window. He had experienced a lack of playing time at Berkane, and AmaZulu offered him an opportunity to rejuvenate his career.
Despite all arrangements being made for his journey to South Africa, Adebayor has consistently delayed his travel without providing clear reasons for his actions. A source from the club expressed frustration, stating, “We sent him several tickets to come, and he never took the flights. He lied to us many times. He acted very poorly. He never succeeded when he went abroad, and I understand now why.”
Adebayor’s previous transfers include a move from Nigerien club USGN to RS Berkane for a reported fee of $100,000 in 2022. He has also played for Ghanaian clubs Inter Allies and Legon Cities, had stints in Denmark with HB Koege, and featured for AS Douanes in Niger, with a loan spell at ENPPI in Egypt.
