London, Sep 18 (ANI): Emmanuel Adebayor has criticized Arsenal after getting a three-match ban for his stamp on striker Robin van Persie.
"There is only so much abuse a man can take until he reaches breaking point," Adebayor said.
Adebayor lifted the lid on his treatment by the Gunners and their fans that led to his outrageous behaviour in Saturday's 4-2 win, and insisted: "Arsenal players refused to shake his hand before the game."
He suffered 60 minutes of non-stop abuse from away fans before he turned the tables on them with his goal, The Sun reports.
Arsene Wenger completed his 25 million pounds summer move from Arsenal behind his back.
Adebayor, banned for Sunday's Manchester derby, said: "I could not understand some of the Arsenal players being disrespectful towards me."
"I was being abused by people who six months ago were singing my name. The abuse was for no reason. It wasn't my fault I left, it was Arsene who wanted to accept the offer for me," he added. (ANI)
