Emmanuel Adebayor may not have shown Derby County much charity at the weekend in scoring three goals againt them, but he shirt he was wearing has raised a small fortune for charity.
The shirt worn by Arsenal's Emmanuel Adebayor when he scored the first hat-trick at the Emirates Stadium has been sold for a cool £50,000, reports The Sun. The Gunners' Togolese striker scored three of Arsenal's goals in their 5-0 victory over Derby County on Saturday, taking his tally to six in his last three Premier League games.
And afterwards Adebayor put the jersey up for auction at the ACLT charity ball in aid of leukaemia research.
Organisers of the ball were expecting the shirt to fetch a few thousand.
Shaun Wright-Phillips’ Chelsea shirt attracted a top bid of £2,000 and Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe’s went for £1,500. So the astronomic price for Adebayor's little piece of history was a welcome revelation - and a great boost for the charity
£50,000 seems way to much for this shirt and there are some who claim the shirt was sold for only £6,000
