Tottenham coach Andre Villas-Boas said he would not stop Emmanuel Adebayor from representing Togo at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Spurs forward, who was present during a 2010 attack on the Togolese team bus which killed three people, recently announced his international retirement, pending more protection from the country’s FA.

But, while the 28-year-old would miss five Premier League games should he feature in the January tournament, Villas-Boas said he would be open to Adebayor changing his mind to play for Togo.

“I haven’t confirmed it because it’s a vulnerable situation and anything can happen,” he told reporters.

“The player can still go, but we just need to be aware of it. It’s always his choice because I’m not going to put myself in a position where I block a player from international duty.

“If he wants to go, we fully respect it. I’m not involved in any form and the club have nothing to do with the situation.

“With some luck, even if the player goes, maybe he’s still involved in the QPR game.”
