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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
