London, Jan 13 (ANI): Togo skipper Emmanuel Adebayor is expected to resume playing for Manchester City this weekend.
The Togo striker is still struggling to come to terms with the machine-gun attack that left three dead on the squad's team buses.
Adebayor appeared on African TV on Tuesday still looking physically and emotionally drained and even wearing his old Arsenal shirt, The Sun reports.
City has said they will give him as much time as he needs to recover from Friday's horrific ordeal. But it emerged last night that Adebayor could return as early as the weekend if, as expected, he is released by Togo.
FIFA confirmed it is up to Togo to decide when the players can play for their clubs again.
The West African country withdrew from the African Nations Cup after the terrorist attack that left three officials dead and two players wounded.
There is some confusion however over whether the Togo FA has appealed to be allowed back into the competition, though organisers insist no such move can now take place. (ANI)
