Manchester United fans have enough reasons not to like ex-Arsenal and Manchester City attacker Emmanuel Adebayor, who’s a free agent after leaving Olimpia, a top club in the South American nation of Paraguay. Emmanuel Adebayor had to leave Olimpia in July 2020 after the outbreak of Covid-19 across the world. The Togolese football icon had featured for some matches before leaving the club. Manchester United fans already have some sort of dislike for Emmanuel Adebayor as a former player of city rivals Manchester City. He’s also an ex-player of Arsenal.


Arsenal and Manchester United enjoyed an intense rivalry for many years. Until the current Premier League season, Arsenal had not won at the home of Manchester United since Emmanuel Adebayor scored the winning goal of the game at the start of the 2006/07 Premier League campaign. Emmanuel Adebayor scored the only goal of the match as Arsenal beat the Red Devils 1-0 at the Theatre of Dreams. Arsenal were able to do the double over Manchester United that season after they came from a goal down to beat the Red Devils 2-1 in their home leg.

Emmanuel Adebayorwas able to get under the skin of more Manchester United fans when he told Ghanaian international Thomas Partey to snub the club for Arsenal. At an event in Ghana towards the end of last year via YouTube, Emmanuel Adebayor said Partey asked for his advice before making the move to North London. The Gunners paid £45m (€50m) to sign Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid in the Spanish La Liga and the transfer as advised by Emmanuel Adebayor came back to haunt Manchester United and their fans. Emmanuel Adebayor had told Thomas Partey to snub Manchester United, Chelseaand other clubs for Arsenal. Thomas Partey went on to win the man-of-the-match award when Arsenal travelled to face the Red Devils as the Gunners won 1-0 to end their winless run away to the Red Devils. Arsenal skipper Pierre-EmerickAubameyang scored the only goal from the penalty spot in the second half of the encounter to end the 14-year wait for a win at Old Trafford.
