Emmanuel Adebayor has revealed that he may return to international football, but only if Togo are more professional.
The Manchester City striker retired from international football after the terrorist attack on Togo’s team bus in the African Cup of Nations in Angola in January.
The 26-year-old admits he would be willing to return to international football so long as changes are made within Togo’s football hierarchy.
“There are a lot of organisational problems and whenever we have tried to do things in recent times, it has been taken in a negative way,” Adebayor told Manc, the official Manchester City magazine.
“Because I have tried to explain things about the national team and tried to help my country, I have become the main focus when any problems arise and people point to me as the cause.
“Things have obviously changed in the last year. I have a daughter now and I have to put her first. I am not going to put myself in situations where I am risking my safety, especially after what happened in Angola.
“If the organisation improved and things became much better, I will definitely play for Togo again. Not doing so has been one of the tougher decisions I have had to make in my life.
“I can choose to die for my country but not in a cheap way. That is the way things are at the moment and I am not prepared to accept that.”
