BRIEF-Soccer-City expect Adebayor to return this weekend

MANCHESTER, England, Jan 22 - Manchester City
striker Emmanuel Adebayor is expected to return to the club this
weekend after a period of compassionate leave, coach Roberto
Mancini said.

The Togo captain was given time off by City after the gun
attack on his team in Angola on Jan. 8 which left two Togo
delegation members dead and prompted the team to withdraw from
the African Nations Cup.

"I think he will come back on Sunday," Mancini told a news
conference on Friday.
