Brede Hangeland described his former teammate, Emmanuel Adebayor as a very lazy player.

Adebayor is currently without a club. Hangeland stated that though Adebayor is an incredible talent, he is more concerned about food than football.

Hangeland said: “I only played with him for six months but here’s a quick story. I was playing for Fulham and he played for Spurs. “We were attacking and I was marking Adebayor in the midfield. He suddenly he said, ‘Ahhh, I’m hungry.’ I replied, ‘What?’
“I can’t wait for the game to finish, I’m so hungry,’ he said. Do you know a good restaurant in London, Hangeland?”

“At Palace, when we had strength workouts, he would sit in the gym with a cup of coffee and a muffin. He was being paid by City, Tottenham and Palace at the same time, and he was sitting in the gym drinking coffee.”

The duo played together at Crystal Palace in 2016.
