2013 Nations Cup : Adebayor withdraws from Togo squad

Togo captain,Emmanuel Adebayor,this morning announced that he has withdrawn from the Togolese squad that will travel to South Africa for the 2013 Nations Cup.
Last week, Adebayor threatened to withdraw from the Nations Cup because of his side’s poor preparation for the tournament.
The Tottenham forward who just returned from a self-imposed exile from the national team,helped Togo qualify for the Nations Cup,but will not be part of the team to South Africa,stating that the Togolese football federation has not done enough to prepare the team.
Togo have been drawn in the percieved ‘Group of Death’ where they will face Ivory Coast, Algeria and Tunisia at the tournament in South Africa.
“We might as well stay with our clubs if we have to make all these efforts to qualify just to show poorly in South Africa next January,” Adebayor told Radio Frequence 1 last week.
“As I am talking to you, I have no idea what is planned for our preparation and our stay in Durban,” Adebayor added.
No doubt that Adebayor will be a big miss for Togo,but will his actions hasten the Togolese FA to into swift preparations for the Nations Cup?
