Striker free to play on Monday

Emmanuel Adebayor has been given a £25,000 fine, and given a two match ‘suspended’ ban for his goal celebration during Manchester City’s victory over Arsenal last month.

The Togo international scored during his side’s four-two win over Arsenal, and immediately ran the length of the field to celebrate in-front of his former club’s fans, who had been abusing him during the course of the game.

Adebayor had already received a three match ban for stamping on former team-mate, Robin Van Persie, during the same game, which he has now served. The suspended ban will only be activated if there is a similar breach of FA rules by the City striker.

Manager Mark Hughes seemed satisfied with the punishment, and stated that he hopes both the player and club can put the incident behind them:

"We are just glad to put it all behind us now and I am relieved he will be able to play at Aston Villa on Monday,

"Manu was in great form before his suspension and having him available again is a huge boost to us,"

Adebayor has scored in all four of his matches for Manchester City this season, and the club currently sit fifth in the Premier League table, three points behind leaders Manchester United, but with a game in hand on their city rivals.
