The report claims that a Togo official has confirmed his absence stating: "He has not given us a reason. He was in the squad but he has just not shown up."
It’s the latest in a string of public mishaps for the striker, coming just a day after he was left out of Tottenham’s Europa League and Premier League squads.
The 31-year old has risked his footballing future by deciding to remain at White Hart Lane rather than lower his demands and feature elsewhere.
Incredible reports have emerged - from the likes of the Telegraph - claiming that the former Arsenal man was on the verge of sealing a loan move to Villa - and had even posed with the club's shirt – before backing out at the last minute because no ‘sign from God’ had appeared.
West Ham United was a potential destination on transfer deadline day, but their inability to loan another domestic player meant that Adebayor would have had to terminate his contract, by mutual consent, before moving on a free.
Sky Sports claim he was unwilling to do so and demanded that Spurs pay out the remaining months on his contract, amounting to a cost of around £5 million.
Given antics of this nature, his no-show with Togo should perhaps come as no surprise and suggests a career which started with such promise looks like descending into farce.
