Even Adebayor's friends have put their friendship aside to condemn the striker and stand up for themselves and their club, something which deserves a heck of a lot of credit. Many player's managers would stick up for their mates regardless and a lot of the times it is the right thing to do, but not when your actions were as bad as that man's. Cesc Fabregas couldn't believe the tackle on him did not credit a red card:"I think this is a red card here. So I think I didn't do too badly for him. I don't know. It is a bit strange. We don't think about him any more. He doesn't play for Arsenal so we just have to concentrate on our game and our players." Alex added:"Once he went to City, it's true that our relationship was not what it had been before. I called him two or three times, and he didn't call me back."I'm not going to force him to do it. And I'm not going to have a laugh with him when I see him in the tunnel."Afterwards, on the pitch, he started to kick. He kicked everyone. That's not normal! He was aggressive."There was a free-kick in their favour and he slapped me. Coming from him, I couldn't believe it. He disappointed me because the person I knew was not the person I met again that day." Eboue gave credit to Toure who came in the Arsenal dressing room to apologise following the game, but still couldn't believe Ade didn't recieve a card for his antics and was happy his "friend" to be banned, deciding to put his club first:"I haven't spoken to him since Saturday because I am very disappointed in him, it was a bad thing to do."In the dressing room, we were very disappointed because we don't know what happened to Adebayor."When he was in our team, we were together, we did everything together and so we don't know what happened. "If he doesn't call me, that's his problem. I think about my team."Credit to the lads, big time.
