Danish club, HB Koge have disclosed the reasons why former Inter Allies forward, Victorien Adebayor has been sent on loan to Legon Cities.
Adebayor made the move the Danish side last year, following the annulment of the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season but his move has been fraught with challenges.
According to the Sporting Director at HB Koge, Adebayor’s struggles with not being close to his family and girlfriend are among other reasons why the club believes the decision to loan him off to the Royals is the right one.
“In this way, we meet the wishes of Adebayor. For personal reasons, he has a strong need to be close to his family for the time to come. We have listened to that. We have come to the conclusion that if he does not thrive here because he does not have “himself with”, it is the right solution,” HB Køge’s director Per Rud said.
“Adebayor’s first time in Denmark has not been easy. There has been corona. The paperwork with visas and work permits has been a long time coming. We have not yet succeeded in bringing his girlfriend to Denmark. At the same time, he has been hit by injuries, which has meant that he has not been given the desired playing time. Now he gets a period in a club where he is safe. At the same time, he can get in shape and, in addition to football, focus on family life.”
The 24-year old scored 12 goals in 13 appearances for Inter Allies in the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season before making the move to the Danish club.
HB Koge say they have put a plan in place with the Legon Cities to ensure the full development of Adebayor.
“We have now put together a plan with Legon Cities FC. It must ensure the framework for Adebayor’s development. He is an exciting player and we still believe in the model with players from Africa and that we can integrate them.”
Adebayor joins Richmond Antwi, Hans Kwofie and Justice Anane as the latest addition to Legon Cities in the second transfer window.
The Royals will take on Techiman Eleven Wonders in Match week 17 of the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.
