Video: Former Spurs striker sent off for karate kick challenge
Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor is continuing to attract headlines at his new club.
Adebayor only signed for new club Olimpia Asuncion in February and has failed to find the back of the net since moving to the Paraguayan side.
The 36-year-old was shown a straight red card for a sickening challenge in the 72nd minute of their 2-1 Copa Libertadores clash against Defensa y Justicia.
The Togo international challenged for a high ball with a ridiculously high boot which made contact with Defensa’s Enzo Coacci.

After the match Adebayor took to Twitter and labelled the tackle as a “Jackie Chan challenge” whilst also stating that there was no malice intended.

SEA, tough game today! What a great team spirit...
