Togo international and former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has left Paraguayan club Olimpia after less than five months at the club due to complications thrown up by the new coronavirus.
Olimpia who disclosed this in a statement released on Tuesday stated that the split was by mutual agreement.

Adebayor, 36, has been at home in Togo for much of the coronavirus pandemic and the club said his return to Paraguay posed significant health and safety problems.
“The high logistical cost and the economic situation the country is going through has not escaped Olimpia either,” the statement read in part.
Adebayor, who has also played for Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid, was a surprise signing for Olimpia in February.
However, he had little chance to perform before the league was suspended due to the global pandemic.
