Togo coach says he won't pick no-show Adebayor anymore

LOME, Togo (AP) Togo coach Tom Saintfiet says he won't select Emmanuel Adebayor anymore after he failed to respond to a call-up for an African Cup qualifier in Djibouti, the latest in a long list of problems involving the national team's star striker.

Saintfiet says his patience has run out, and ''if you are dating a woman who does not want to respond positively, then you must look for another woman.''

Saintfiet says the Tottenham forward failed to respond regarding last week's game, when all he had to do was send a text message or an email.

Adebayor played and scored in a qualifying win against Liberia in June but expressed his disappointment then that he was overlooked for the captaincy.

He has been in and out of the Togo team for years.
