Emmanuel Adebayor: Revealed respect for boss Tim Sherwood

Emmanuel Adebayor: Revealed respect for boss Tim Sherwood

The Togo striker's future at White Hart Lane looked to be in doubt after falling out with previous boss Andre Villas-Boas, making just one substitute appearance in the first 26 matches of the season.

However, Adebayor has enjoyed a new lease of life under Sherwood, and insisted, if he had his way, the rookie boss would be retained.

"Hopefully he stays, but I am not the chairman of the club so I can't tell you anything about that," Adebayor told the Tottenham Journal.

"We will see what happens in the future.

"No matter where he goes, I will always keep him in my heart and I have a huge respect for him - as a manager, as a friend, as an ex-footballer, because he knows what it takes to be a footballer.

"He respects everyone equally, and for me he is a great man and a great manager."

Adebayor also revealed he is happy at the club having fought his way back into the first-team fold, and is already looking ahead to the 2014/15 campaign.

"I just want to forget the bad moments and look to the good ones and the good games I have played and learn from that, and work hard for the next season," Adebayor added.

"Hopefully I will have a proper pre-season, because for the last three years I haven't had one. It's very difficult for a player not to have a pre-season.

"I'm definitely looking forward to that one and hopefully this will lead to my best season ever. I have the quality and a big belief in myself. I know I can do it and I will do it."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
