There are falls from graces and then there’s Emmanuel Adebayor.

2008-09: Adebayor wins the Match of the Day Goal of the Season award.

2009: Adebayor signs for big-spending Manchester City for €34 million.

2011: Adebayor goes on loan to the biggest club in the world, Real Madrid (we barely remember this, we must admit).

2015: Adebayor’s looking for a job.

The controversial Togolese striker was released from his Tottenham contract by mutual consent this morning and it prompted the sarcastic hashtag #ThanksAde where Spurs fans could offer up their gratefulness to all that Adebayor achieved at White Hart Lane.

Not everyone was so thankful of Adebayor though. Some Spurs fans reacted to the news like Christmas had arrived in mid-September.
