Spurs player Emmanuel Adebayor offers to pay for shirt exchange
Spurs player Emmanuel Adebayor is offering to pay for fan’s new shirts after a change of squad number.
Adebayor changed his squad number from 25 to 10 following the departure of midfielder Rafael van der Vaart who had previously worn the shirt.
However a number of fans had already bought the shirt with Adebayor’s old number, and an act of generosity the player has offered to pay for the replacement shirt himself.
He said: “The number 10 is a special number for me and so when it became available I asked if I could change.
“The Club were happy to accommodate me, but were conscious that a number of fans had already purchased their new Under Armour shirt with the name and number printed on the back, after the squad numbers had been officially submitted ahead of the start of the season.
“I am very proud that Spurs fans want to have my name and number on their shirt and I didn’t want them to be inconvenienced by this change.
“Therefore, I’m very happy to cover the cost to enable those fans to exchange their shirts - for an Adebayor 10.”
The offer is for fans who bought an Under Armour 2012-13 'Adebayor 25' shirt between August 23 and September 2 and have proof of purchase.
