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."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
