Controversial Ex-Arsenal player, Emmanuel Adebayor says he doesn’t want his former club, Arsenal Fc to win the English premier League this season. The Togolese player, who left White Hart Lane under a cloud and is still hated by Spurs fans, says he prefers Tottenham to lift the trophy. The Crystal Palace centre forward says he is rooting for the Spurs to lift the trophy especially with the consistent effort the team has put in thus far.
“I am happy for them this year. With Mauricio, it was quite hard, when he first came in,” the player who was frozen out by the coach started.
“We could all sense that he would be a great manager for the club because he is working hard every day.
“I am not surprised with where they are. I know the qualities. Christian Eriksen is there. Harry Kane is plating some fantastic football and scoring some amazing goals, which we all knew he had in the locker.
“Mousa Dembele is flying now. Dele Alli is a player with huge potential to be one of the best midfielders in the world. They have got a good squad.
“They just need to keep going and keep believing. Whatever happens this season, they will be up there again next season.”
The former Spurs player got an assist when Crystal palace played Arsenal in a 1-1 draw. When he came off the bench, the fans jeered loudly at him but that did not stop him from making impact.
“If any of my old clubs win the league, I can only be happy for them, because I have been there.
“No matter what they say, I have passed through that door. Either people love me or hate me, I have been there and my name will always be there.”
