Emmanuel Adebayor says joining Crystal Palace was the worst decision of his career.

The former Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham striker signed a six-month deal with the Eagles in January 2016.

And he was released at the end of the season after scoring just one goal. The 33-year-old struggled for game time under then-Palace boss Alan Pardew.

Adebayor, who currently plays for Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir, said: “I had some great experiences in England in clubs who are among the best in the country.

“The only error that I made was to sign for Crystal Palace in January 2016.

“I did it just to please my entourage, who were saying to me ‘Manu, you have to start playing again!’ It was the worst decision of my career.”
