Man City will miss its $41 million man against Man U [VIDEO]
September 18th, 2009 7AM

[ENGLAND] Manchester City, in its bid to become a Premier League power, spent more than $150 million on players in the offseason, including $41.6 million to buy Emmanuel Adebayor from Arsenal. But he'll miss this weekend's game against archrival Manchester United because of the three-game suspension handed to him by the English FA for stamping on the face of Arsenal's Robin van Persie in last Saturday's 4-2 win over the Gunners. The FA will decide later whether he'll be punished for taunting Arsenal fans after his goal, while Arsenal playmaker Cesc Fabregas said he was also an Adebayor victim.

"I was lucky my foot was in the air when it happened. You know this is football and it can happen. Well... it's not football but it can happen," Fabregas told The Sun.

The FA will decide at a later date whether to discipline Adebayor for running across the field so he could celebrate his goal in front of Arsenal fans, who had been jeering him throughout the game.

"There is only so much abuse a man can take until he reaches breaking point," Abedayor said. "I scored and I wanted to show people it is not a good idea to abuse me."
