A club in Paraguay - Olimpia -is using Emmanuel Adebayor to entice its paid-up members (socios) to sign in their numbers.
The president of Olimpia has already issued a statement , saying they would be in the position to sign Adebayor only if they recruited 20,000 more socios by the close of today (Monday February 10) .
“If on Monday there are 20,000 more socios, Emmanuel Adebayor will be an Olimpia player and will be presented next Wednesday (February 12).
“This is our challenge, our objective, my commitment as well as that of all the Olimpist people, "said Marco Trovato.
Mr Trovato used the same tactics to recruit as many as 15,000 paid up members last year when he wanted to sign Ale Silva.
Since he issued the statement on Adebayor’s recruitment, he had recruited 13,000 new socios, and expectations are that, he would meet the target of 20,000 members to bring the Togolese prolific striker on board .
For his part, Adebayor has also complimented the club’s president tactics by posting a video, urging the fans to sign up so he would play for Olimpia.
"Hello, I'm Emmanuel Adebayor, become a member so that we can meet soon in Olimpia ".
