Barcelona's Cameroonian striker Samuel Eto'o has tipped Arsenal's Togolese forward Emmanuel Adebayor for the Africa Player of the Year gong…

Some top strikers are vying for the African award, but none are without their baggage. Samuel Eto'o has been frequently linked with a Camp Nou exit, Chelsea hitman Didier Drogba has become all-too-familiar with the Stamford Bridge treatment room and Emmanuel Adebayor has fought tooth-and-nail

with the Fédération Togolaise de Football over unpaid bonus monies.

Still, Eto'o believes that Ade has done enough – emerging from the shadow of the departed Thierry Henry for the Gunners – to deserve the continent's top individual honour.

Eto'o told CFI: "I would have loved to win this award again, but this year has been Adebayor's year.

"His performances for Arsenal and Togo throughout the year have been outstanding. He should win ahead of Drogba and I.
