“Roque can help Emmanuel a lot and if everything goes as expected, we believe that Adebayor will also help our captain achieve that goal so desired by all the fans of our club. We want to win everything we play and our captain is key in that.”
Adebayor has already had his first training session with the club, but it is unlikely he will feature in this weekend match against 12 de Octubre.
When could Adebayor make his debut for Olimpia?
His debut will likely come in Sunday’s Superclásico, the biggest game in Paraguayan football between Olimpia and city rivals Cerro Porteño.
The match is always a highly anticipated event, but now with a potential debut on the cards for Adebayor, the interest in the match is likely to skyrocket.
The 2018 Superclásico saw 14-year-old Fernando Ovelar score to become the youngest goalscorer in Paraguayan football.
In 2019, Roque Santa Cruz scored four goals in a 4-2 victory.
