Just last week we commented on reports claiming that Emmanuel Adebayor was desperate to leave White Hart Lane in January after reported moves away from the club fell through on deadline day. There was talk of a transfer to Schalke 04 in Germany which failed over personal terms while the most unlikely suggestion was of a late swap deal involving Chelsea’s Fernando Torres.

However Ade, who has yet to feature for Tottenham this season claims the stories are all rubbish.

“It’s going very well,” said Adebayor to local radio in Togo,

“When I went back to Tottenham, I talked to the coach and he told me that I was not ready yet for the pro group. I had to go to work in reserve for two to three weeks to regain my confidence, my sense of goal, etc… And I complied with his advice. That’s why I ‘m still not on the bridge at the beginning of the season.”

The striker went on to comment over the battle for places in Spurs’ front line.

“Today I will not tell you that I ‘m stronger than Soldado or Defoe or Lamela,” he added.

“We are now 4 in the attack, I do not know who ranks first, second or third but I know at the end I will be the first and it is the most important.”

It’s an interesting interview and you can see the full transcript here but while Emmanuel Adebayor is happy for now, will he even get a chance to prove his worth to the squad before the January window opens.




  1. I hope these words relate into actions. If he did have a bot fo humility and worked his socks off, I would say top 4 is FAR easier with an Adebyor in the mood! – Time will tell what sort of mood he is in…

  2. Actually I, eastendspur, am the greatest striker at Spurs…..how do we all know this?….because I said so!

    If Ade turns mouth into goals then fine. 3 or four strikers all striving to be the best = goals & points.
    But if he thinks that who earns the most salary makes you number 1 or who can walk around the most without touching the ball makes you number 1.. he will remain in the reserves!

  3. Who does this bloke think he is what a total waste of space hes here because no one else will touch him with a barge pole levy fucked up here big time signing him.
    Nothing more than a greedy cunt it breaks my heart seeing him pull the shirt on dirty no good gooner cunt
