Adebayor Goes On Strike

Emmanuel Adebayor has effectively gone on strike at Manchester City by failing to show up for training having been left out of the club's pre-season tour.

The forward is likely to be fined at least two weeks wages -- £330,000 in total -- and may be in breach of contract, after failing to show at Carrington yesterday. He was also absent for a scheduled training session last Saturday.

City are refusing to be held to ransom by players bought in on expensive salaries two years ago.

The relationship between player and club is becoming poisonous, with Adebayor claiming last week that he was considering bringing a constructive dismissal claim against the club, having heard of his omission from the United States tour from a secretary.
