Adebayor to meet Togo mediator
Togo and Arsenal's Emmanuel Adebayor
Emmanuel Adebayor has been expelled from the Togo team
Emmanuel Adebayor is set to meet a mediator to try and resolve an ongoing row over bonus payments that has seen several players expelled from the Togolese national side.

Winny Dogbatse, who was appointed by league chiefs in Togo to mediate between the Togo Football Federation (FTF) and the footballers, told the AFP news agency he would be travelling to Europe to meet the players.

Dogbatse, who is president of second division club Gomido, was appointed after league chiefs demanded earlier this month that the players be reinstated.

"I'm undertaking a visit to Europe on Thursday to meet with Emmanuel Adebayor and his team-mates," Dogbatse said.

"I've completed my meetings on a local level. I've meet with the office of the Togo Football Federation and the president of the national Olympic committee, Zoumaro Gnofame."

Arsenal striker Adebayor had been excluded from the team in March along with Kader Cougbadja, who plays in the UAE, and Nibombe Dare of Belgian side Mons.

The decision came after Adebayor revealed that Togolese internationals, who threatened to boycott last year's World Cup over a bonus row, were still waiting to be paid some of the bonus they were promised for reaching the World Cup finals.
