It’s tempting to ignore them but the rumours over a possible Spurs move for Emmanuel Adebayor just won’t go away. Newspaper reports have appeared sporadically over the last week or so, but the Evening Standard now carries a story stating that the player would be happy to come here and he claims that his first choice destination this season, prior to Madrid was White Hart Lane.
“I would go there and sign for them and listen to what they have to say to me,” said Adebayor. “I will definitely come back to the Premier League, I do not know when but I miss it.
“I felt sad because before joining Real Madrid my first choice was Tottenham. I was supposed to sign for Tottenham before Madrid came in.”
Speaking of Spurs fans reaction to him during the recent ties against Real Madrid, he went on to say: “I did not take it badly but it is bad because people have to realise that we are footballers, today we play for one team, tomorrow we may end up playing for another. What if I am wearing a Tottenham shirt tomorrow?”
So is Adebayor the answer to our goalscoring prayers or is this an ex-Goon too far?
