Victorien Adebayor has explained why he took the decision to join Legon Cities in March, insisting “I didn’t get my chance” at HB Koge after securing a move last season.
Danish club HB Koge confirmed last week that the club has reached an agreement for the transfer of Nigerien international forward Victorien Adje Adebayor to Legon Cities FC on a short-term deal.
Adebayor joined the Danish second-tier side from Ghana Premier League outfit Inter Allies FC in October 2020.
The club further explained that the decision was taken after the player found it difficult to settle because they could not unite him with his longtime girlfriend.
Addressing the claims at his unveiling by Legon Cities FC, Victorien Adebayor has noted that he opted for a move because he was not getting playing time.
“The problem I had in Denmark was purely footballing. I was not playing and the main reason why I was there was to play and not any girlfriend issue,” he said.
Adebayor continued, “The reason I love Ghana football is because of the wide coverage of Ghanaian football and it gives you the opportunity to get a contract abroad.”
The Nigerien attacker is expected to provide a massive squad boost for Legon Cities FC in the second half of the Ghana Premier League season.
Adebayor joins Richmond Antwi, Hans Kwofie and Justice Anane as the latest additions to the Royals squad in the second transfer window.
