Emmanuel Adebayor: Ready for the challenge of competing for a starting spot at T

Spurs sold Gareth Bale during the transfer window but have bolstered their squad with a number of eye-catching signings and there are now a host of options for Andre Villas-Boas in attack.

Adebayor had been linked with a move elsewhere but he insists he is happy at the club and had no intention of going anywhere.

He told All Africa.com: "I decided with my manager, even before the start of the transfer window that I would not leave Tottenham and that's what I did.

"I have never thought of leaving Spurs. I am here, my family feels great here and I do not see myself in another city."

Roberto Soldado has gone straight into Tottenham's starting line-up since signing from Valencia and Erik Lamela was then bought from Roma in a club-record deal, while Jermain Defoe remains a key a part of Villas-Boas' plans.

However, Adebayor is confident that he will ultimately emerge as the first-choice striker under Villas-Boas.

He said: "Today I will not tell you that I 'm stronger than Soldado or Defoe or Lamela.

"We now have four 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."

aha, as a German supporting United I can only agree with your great insight in German football! No idea why, but I HATE Eintracht Braunschweig and please don't ever place a bet on Leverkusen, they mess up my ticket every time!
