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."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
