Emmanuel Adebayor has taken to social networking site Twitter to thank the Tottenham Hotspur fans following his release from the club.
Tottenham have reached a mutual agreement with the striker which will see him released from his contract, as announced on the club’s official website today.
The former Arsenal star played well for Spurs during the 2011-12 campaign, scoring 17 goals in the Premier League.
The 31-year-old signed a permanent contract with the North London outfit in the summer of 2012 amid hype and expectations.
However, Adebayor failed to replicate his form of 2011-12 over the next three years and even struggled to get into the starting line-up last season.
The former AS Monaco star scored five goals and created 27 chances in 25 Premier League appearances for Tottenham during the 2012-13 campaign.
In 2013-14, Adebayor scored 11 goals and created 34 chances in 21 league matches, while last season he found the target twice and created 12 chances in 13 Premier League appearances.
Following the announcement of his release, the Togo international striker took to Twitter to thank Spurs and the fans for their support over the years.
Tottenham supporters, though, seem happy to see the back of Adebayor (most of them anyway).

@E_Adebayor You were lazy, disruptive and greedy, Ade. It's too late to show the club respect now.— K.J. Stewart (@KevJStewart) September 13, 2015
@E_Adebayor Good luck Ade, hope you manage to find some peace. Will always remember your performance away at Stamford Bridge. Class.— tehTrunk© (@tehTrunk) September 13, 2015
@E_Adebayor "...for all the money they gave me over the years in return for absolutely no effort or desire on my part." Good riddance, mate.— Tom Hepburn (@tomhepburn1984) September 13, 2015
@E_Adebayor no thank you for finally leaving. No doubt you've had a huge undeserved payout!— Bekki Louise Pobgee (@Bekki_Pobgee) September 13, 2015
@E_Adebayor you just love money and nothing else!!!— David Donnelly (@david_don73thfc) September 13, 2015
@E_Adebayor Thanks? Your actions demonstrate how you feel about the club/fans. Most insincere thing ever written on here.— Daniel (@ChilversDaniel) September 13, 2015
