#Sports: Emmanuel Adebayor's Brother Rotimi Adebayor Begs for Forgiveness

Emmanuel Adebayor's brother, Rotimi Adebayor, has now begged for forgiveness after he was labeled a thief by the Togolese international.

The former Arsenal and current Tottenham striker took to facebook last week to attack his family for abusing his generosity during his career as a professional footballer. The towering star, who scooped African Player of the Year in 2008, picked out his brother Rotimi and accused him of stealing his souvenir shirts from legend Zinedine Zidane and Marc-Vivien Foe.

Adebayor wrote, “In 2002, I went to play the AFCON in Mali and I had the huge privilege to swap my shirt with Marc-Vivien Foé. May his soul rest in peace.When I got back to Togo, I put that shirt in a secure place. My brother found a way to steal that shirt and sold it.

“When I moved from Metz to Monaco, we reached an advanced stage in the Champions League and we played against Real Madrid. It was one of most beautiful day of my life because I was lucky enough to get a signed shirt from the football legend Zinedine Zidane. As I brought that shirt back to Togo, my brother still found a way to steal that shirt and sold it”

In his response, Adebayor's brother Rotimi is now seeking for forgiveness. He told BBC, "I'm so sorry for everything that I've done wrong...I want to beg, forgive me. I want him (Emmanuel) to try and be with us again. To sit like a family, do things together. I pray to God that moment is coming soon.

"People are laughing at us, but they will see us and they will cry...God's time is the best, I wish my brother good luck."
Adebayor has promised to post another message (Part 3 of his many series) regarding the actions of his father, Kola Adebayor.
