Niger Football Federation (NFF) president Djibril Hima Hamidou believes Inter Allies talisman Victorien Adebayor is cut for the European game.

The Capelli Boys forward has earned rave reviews this season after managing 10 goals and 4 assists from 10 appearances in the ongoing Ghana Premier League.

This has attracted interest from Ghana's two biggest clubs Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak in his services.

However,  Djibril Hima Hamidou says the Nigerien international should ignore their interest and move to Europe.

“We have heard all about Adebayor’s exploits in Ghana," Hamidou told TV3. "His club president is my personal friend so we do stay in touch.

"Adebayor is a boy with so much quality. He has a gifted foot but he is yet to mature as expected. Now he is a national team player and must be aware of that and act accordingly."

"At the level of his game, he should have been in Europe by now.”
