Arsenal’s Ghanaian youth striker Zak Ansah took to twitter to mock Adebayor’s horrible penalty miss in Tottenham Hotspur’s Europa League defeat at FC Basel on Thursday night.
The Togolese striker lifted his kick over the crossbar to add to André Villas-Boas men’s agony on a night their hopes crashed in Switzerland.
Tottenham were without their talisman Gareth Bale while Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe also missed the trip for various reason.
Adebayor, a former Arsenal star, was expected to carry the North London side on his shoulders but he ended up claiming a villain status.
And, after missing Tottenham’s second kick of the night, the 17-year-old Ghanaian striker who plays for Arsenal’s U21 side compared Adebayor’s moment of horror to that of Ali Shuffle, a famous series of boxing footwork created by boxer Muhammad Ali.
“Adebayor was that your version of the Ali Shuffle,” he tweeted.
Ansah signed a professional contract at Arsenal in 2011.
