“I had some great experiences in England in clubs who are among the best in the country,” he told L’Équipe.

“I was happy there, my family too. The only error that I made was to sign for Crystal Palace in January 2016.

“I did it just to please my entourage, who were saying to me: ‘Manu, you have to start playing again!’ It was the worst decision of my career.”

In 15 senior matches for Palace under then boss Alan Pardew, Adebayor scored just once in a losing effort to Watford.
