Bizarro news: UK soccer player of slipping performance claims it’s because his mother placed a curse on him – ‘Muslim alfas’ involved

The elder brother of Emmanuel Adebayor believes the Spurs striker has been brainwashed into believing his mother has placed a curse on him which is affecting his form.

Adebayor’s brother Kola, 42, works as a truck driver in Germany, and told the Sun on Sunday:

“He has been brainwashed by these Muslim alfas – spiritual men – who prophesise when he scores goals and this is why he is not playing well.”

“They have convinced him his sister and mother put juju curses on him,” he continued. “My mother is very sad. Every day she is crying. I just talked to her on the phone and she was crying again.”

Adebayor has scored just two goals in 12 matches under new Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino, and was recently forced to deny claims from his sister Maggie that he’d kicked his mother out of the home he bought for them in Africa…
