Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has been ditched by the Togolese national side after manager Tom Saintfiet said that he would not be selecting him again, the Daily Express reports.
Saintfiet revealed that the 31-year-old failed to respond to a call up for an African Nations Cup qualifier against Djibouti on September 4.
According to Saintfiet, Adebayor failed to reply by text message or email to his call up, and has now invoked the wrath of his manager.
“If you are dating a woman who does not want to respond positively, then you must look for another woman,” Saintfiet said.
“For me, it is clear that he is a player who does not want to play for his country anymore.”
Adebayor now faces playing absolutely no football until the new year after Spurs left him out of of their Premier League and Europa League squads.
Adebayor last featured for for his country in June when he scored against Liberia, however, he later expressed his disappointment at being overlooked for the captaincy.
