Ade returns to mixed welcome

by Matthew Harris on August 22, 2012

Tottenham finally announced the signing of Emmanuel Adebayor yesterday but reaction among Spurs fans seems to have been mixed. According to reports, the fee of £5m had been agreed between Spurs and Manchester City some time ago but weeks of negotiations were needed in order to iron out personal terms.

Ade himself says he is delighted to be back at the Lane.

“I am pleased to be signing for Spurs on a permanent basis after finally agreeing my departure with Manchester City,” he said on Spurs’ official website.

“It may have taken longer than expected but I am delighted to be back at Tottenham Hotspur.

“I really enjoyed my time here last season and I am hoping we can achieve great things together again.”

When the news was posted on Facebook however, there was delight and condemnation in equal measures – once you had taken out comments from West Ham fans that is.

So where do you stand on the Ade issue? Are you pleased to see him back or concerned that something, somewhere is going to go wrong as it has done with one or two of his previous clubs?
